US Department of State, Bureau of International  tiep bong da k+ Narcotics and law Enforcement Affairs, “Information Brief: Vietnamese Drug Treatment Outcome study,” April 2009. The “Information Brief” summarizes research on the training undertaken by Danya International. See Danya International, “Effectiveness of INL Drug Treatment Training in Vietnam: A 2008 Follow-Up Study,” February 2009. The study did not identify a control group. The study involved interviewing 615 residents at 30 days after release and (of this number) 392 at 6 months after release. The INL “Information Brief” only reports on the rates of drug use among the 392 people at the 6 month mark (with results showing that among this group, drug use fell from 100 percent “before treatment” to 27 percent six months after release). It appears that 223 former residents were lost to follow-up between 30 days and 6 months after release. If rates of return to drug use were high among these 223 former residents, then the overall rates of drug use at the six month mark could be considerably higher.

The funds have been provided to the Vietnamese government under HIV/AIDS round 6 (January 2008- March 2010), HIV/AIDS round 8 (beginning April 2010), TB round 9 (beginning January 2011) and HIV/AIDS round 10 (beginning January 2011). Note that Vietnam’s Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) and The Global Fund refer to Vietnam’s drug detention centers as “Treatment and Education Centers” or (more recently) as “Training, Education and Social Labor Centers.”
