MEET MR NGUYEN VIET DUNG
Striving for community empowerment and social impact are Viet Dung’s passion and commitment for nearly 20 years. He graduated from the University of New South Wales, Australia with the double degrees (Master of Public Health and Master of Health Management) and studied International Relations and International Law at the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam-Ministry of Foreign Affairs as well as other trainings over multi-sectoral platforms in Canada, USA, France, etc. He was working for Ministry of Health in Vietnam Steering Committee on Smoking and Health to coordinate national communications and health promotion initiatives. This gave him a chance of working at both local and global environments such as policy advocacy, fundraising, international relations and negotiations and organizing study tours between Vietnamese and international governments. Afterwards, he worked for PATH-a leading global health organization and was in charge of local marketing and communications scopes for multiple projects including HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, tuberculosis and hypertension. Along with these tasks, he successfully coordinated various children-oriented initiatives such as smoke-free schools, models of community TB control or national contests of TB-themed paintings for children. Proud to be a great friend of all the children he has been working with and for, he is fully devoted to promoting and fighting for children’s rights and inspiring others to join hands for a better world for our children.
