Abstract: Another expected consequence of climate change is warming temperatures that may promote the emergence of dengue and other vector-borne NTDs [9]. [...]Vietnam experiences social and physical determinants that can either promote or reduce its NTDs. The major approach includes mass drug administration with diethylcarbamazine citrate and albendazole combination therapy, or triple therapy by adding ivermectin, together with improvements linked to economic gains, including housing and water drainage infrastructure [23–25]. Since 2011, these activities accelerated through support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) NTD Program and its FHI360 and RTI International contractors [22]. The NIMPE-MOH is partnering with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Atlanta-based Task Force for Global Health to conduct operational research to help sustain and monitor LF elimination [26]. Support from WHO, World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), and the CDC have increased Vietnam’s capabilities to increase rabies awareness and improve dog surveillance, including a pilot prevention program in Thai Nguyen Province that incorporates dog registration and management [52,53].
