In Vietnam, AOP is a pioneer in implementing community-based biological control programs for dengue prevention. Starting from public health, AOP has expanded into other fields, such as agriculture, water and sanitation, food security, climate change, livelihoods and governance.
The community-based approach plays an important role in AOP's project. Through open dialogues, AOP in Vietnam works directly with local communities to listen to their concerns and aspirations, thereby providing proper support.
Over the past 30 years, AOP has supported more than 250,000 poor and difficult people through many projects in 35 provinces and cities of Vietnam with a total value of more than USD 30 million.
