HIV-infected people given monthly allowances
Infected people living on their own will receive at least 65,000 VND per month.
The allowance levels are stipulated in a circulation guiding the implementation of the Prime Minister's Decision on policy for HIV/AIDS infected people and their caregivers at State welfare centres.
Under the circulation, issued recently by the Ministry of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs, allowances for HIV/AIDS infected persons living on their own are responsibility of communes, districts and townships. Allowances can be adjusted by provincial and municipal People's Committees, but must be equal to or higher than the stipulated 65,000 VND per month level.
