Institute for Social Development Studies





From its earliest years, ISDS has been pioneering unique studies of gender, sexuality and sexual health in Vietnam. Two most notable studies are a qualitative inquiry on social construction of sexuality in Vietnam in 2003; and a national survey on sexuality and sexual health in 2009.

In addition to the studies of the general population, ISDS also conducted scientific investigations of sexual minorities of men who have sex with men, intravenous drug users, unauthorized rural-urban migrants, commercial sex workers, people living with HIV (PLWHIV), and trafficking victims. Both the state and mainstream society severely stigmatize and discriminate these groups, largely by linking their sexuality to the spread of HIV in the country. Many publications and research papers have been published and widely disseminated. Read more Reports

The Institute’s above works on sexuality and sexual health have been funded by The Ford Foundation since 2002. Since 2009, as a partner in the STAR project of the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University and Hanoi Medical University, ISDS has conducted a research on reproductive and sexual health of people living with HIV who participating in ARV treatment in Hanoi. Within three years from 2006 to 2009, ISDS in collaboration with the Program on Global Health and Human Rights of the Harvard School of Public Health and Center for Studies and Applied Sciences in Gender – Family - Women and Adolescents (CSAGA) and later Actionaid, conducted a research on the link between sexual violence and the vulnerability of HIV infection. The research findings were later successfully used for development of a toolkit to guide action to raise awareness on the issue.
