While in Vietnam today, Secretary Clinton engaged in health diplomacy by visiting the Ngoc Lam Pagoda orphanage for AIDS-affected children. After meeting with the kids, she signed a partnership agreement with Vietnamese Justice Minister Ha Hung Cuong that provides a five-year plan of cooperation between Vietnam, the United States, and other stakeholders to effectively respond to HIV/AIDS in Vietnam. It also contributes funds to PEPFAR (the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) for prevention, care, and treatment.
