The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2014 Cooperative Agreement for Workforce Development in Vietnam: HIV-Addiction Technology Transfer Center (Vietnam H-ATTC). The purpose of this program is to build the capacity and increase the skills and abilities of two Vietnam Medical Universities (VMUS), specifically Hanoi Medical University and Ho Chi Minh University of Medicine and Pharmacy, in developing and implementing a Vietnam H-ATTC to assess the training and development needs of the behavioral health (including HIV, substance use, and mental disorders treatment) workforce, and to develop and conduct training and technology transfer activities in Vietnam in a culturally competent and linguistically appropriate manner. The grantee will provide training and technical assistance to VMUs to enhance their ability to: (1) translate research findings into user-friendly and clinically applicable materials; (2) utilize innovative skills development methods; (3) increase awareness and expertise in cultural competence; (4) promote and develop education and training programs within the existing academic institutions (i.e., primary healthcare) and assist with enabling these VMUs to build the capacity of the addiction services system, specifically starting with methadone in Vietnam. The Vietnam H-ATTC program seeks to address behavioral health disparities by encouraging the implementation of strategies to decrease the differences in access, service use, and outcomes among the racial and ethnic minority populations served.
