Giới thiệu

A MULTI-SITE SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED ON A SAMPLE OF 365 CLIENTS TO ASSESS THEIR WILLINGNESS TO PAY FOR HIV VOLUNTARY COUNSELING AND TESTING (VCT) SERVICES IN HA NOI AND NAM DINH PROVINCE, TWO EPICENTERS OF VIETNAM. BY USING CONTINGENT VALUATION TECHNIQUE, THE RESULTS SHOWED THAT MOST OF RESPONDENTS (95.1%) WERE WILLING TO PAY AVERAGELY 155 (95% CI 132177) THOUSANDS VIETNAM DONG (~US $7.75, 2013) FOR A VCT SERVICE. CLIENTS WHO WERE FEMALE, HAD MIDDLE INCOME LEVEL, AND CURRENT OPIOID USERS WERE WILLING TO PAY LESS; MEANWHILE CLIENTS WHO HAD UNIVERSITY LEVEL OF EDUCATION WERE WILLING TO PAY MORE FOR A VCT SERVICE. THE RESULTS HIGHLIGHTED THE HIGH RATE OF WILLINGNESS TO PAY FOR THE SERVICE AT A HIGH AMOUNT BY VCT CLIENTS. THESE FINDINGS CONTRIBUTE TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF CO-PAYMENT SCHEME FOR VCT SERVICES TOWARD THE FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY OF HIV/AIDS PROGRAMS IN VIETNAM. 2015, SPRINGER SCIENCE+BUSINESS MEDIA NEW YORK.
