Friends of the Global Fund, Japan (FGFJ) took four members of the FGFJ Diet Task Force on a site visit to Vietnam from September 5 to 9, 2023. The visit happened to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Vietnamese-Japanese diplomatic relationship, thus under a heightened interest in appreciating and promoting the bilateral tie. During the visit, the delegation met with various stakeholders engaged in health issues in Viet Nam and they gained a better understanding of the achievements made to date and the impact of the Global Fund’s support.
*In the context of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Vietnam, this initiative has received certification as a 50th-anniversary designated project.
