The project is supported by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs under the US Department of State, and the UNDP's Anti-Corruption for Peaceful and Inclusive Societies (ACPIS) Global Program.

Part of the project, sponsored by the Norwegian Government through the ACPIS program, aims to improving anti-corruption and transparency in the health sector in Viet Nam.

The 27-month project is expected to help enhance capacity of anti-corruption agencies in effective measurement and monitoring of sustainable development goal (SDG) anticorruption targets, and increase participation of the society in anti-corruption fight.

It targets to strengthen anti-corruption legal framework and law enforcement in the implementation of UNCAC commitments and recommendations on preventive measures and asset recovery; and improve capacity in good governance, transparency, and integrity in public health procurement in Viet Nam.

The UN Convention Against Corruption is the only legally binding universal anti-corruption instrument. 

UNCAC and its Implementation Review Mechanism have been critical in stimulating anti-corruption reforms and strengthening national commitments to act against corruption. 

Viet Nam ratified UNCAC in 2009 and since then has continued strengthening its implementation.
