Healthcare in Vietnam is in a development stage. Currently, Vietnam is working towards a multi-faceted, universal healthcare system. At present, only 71.6% of the populace had private healthcare coverage in 2020. However, this figure is expected to change over the next two years as more private companies begin to provide healthcare coverage in Vietnam.
Healthcare in Vietnam is improved in several areas. One major improvement is the increase in hospitals and clinics equipped with modern technology, equipment, and facilities. Another improvement is the increased number of trained medical staff and doctors. Vietnamese people have also become used to visiting a hospital to get routine checkups instead of relying on long hours of travel to see their family doctor.
Improved infrastructure has allowed many rural areas to be converted from remote rural areas to urban areas with better healthcare facilities and doctors available to serve the growing population.
