AbstractIntegration of gender and human rights into HIV/AIDS policies and programs has shown to improve national AIDS responses. Yet, these issues are often contested at the individual, community, programmatic and societal levels. Faculty from the Ho Chi Minh National Political Academy, Boston University, and Harvard University provided training to strengthen the ability of provincial leaders to design, implement and evaluate rights-based, gender-sensitive and multi-sectoral AIDS responses in Vietnam. Researchers from Boston University and the Hanoi School of Public Health conducted a qualitative cross-over comparison study to evaluate the impact of this training in six provinces.
