From October 2007 to May 2012, a project on "Strengthening the accessibility and quality of reproductive health care with focus on safe motherhood, adolescent reproductive health and reproductive rights" was implemented in the four provinces of Quang Ninh, Hue, Nghe An and Can Tho by the Viet Nam Family Planning Association (VINAFPA), with technical assistance from UNFPA and financial support provided by the Government of Luxembourg. The project aimed to help Vietnamese people, youth and adolescents in the project sites acquire the skills necessary to develop and sustain healthy and happy lives, particularly in areas with unmet needs for sexual and reproductive health, including family planning.

This 13-minute video highlights key achievements of the project, as well as details how to sustain these achievements and further apply them in other provinces, so that more vulnerable women, men and young people and adolescents, whether from urban or rural areas, or from majority or minority ethnic groups, will have access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care services.

This is a story of Ka Gia Thi Lan, a trained ethnic minority midwife in Ninh Thuan province. She was sent to attend a training course for ethnic minority midwives at Tu Du hospital, Ho Chi Minh city in 2006 for six months. After returning home, Lan tried to provide support to pregnant women and small children in the village. She also provided check-ups in the farm where the pregnant women worked,

as many did not want to go the commune health care center. Through these visits, she diagnosed many problems and saved many lives. Lan is among more than 1,000 of trained village-based midwives in remote and mountainous areas in Viet Nam. They play very important roles in saving the lives of women and children, thus contributing to the country's sustainable development.

 In recent years, Viet Nam’s fertility trend has consistently declined from 2.1 in 2005 to 2.03 in 2009, 2.0 in 2010 and 1.99 children per woman in 2011. Many Asian countries where fertility has fallen below the replacement level, such as Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Thailand are challenged by future shortages of labour and productivity, which potentially impact on the quality of life for the ageing generations.

 
This video collects opinions of different socio-economic population groups on their reproductive decisions regarding socio-economic factors affected their decision could help  policy makers better understanding on fertility trend in Viet Nam in the coming years. This video also calls for further efforts on ensuring universal access to comprehensive and high quality sexual and reproductive health services including family planning, particularly in remote areas, and among ethnic minorities for better quality of life and poverty reduction.

Viet Nam has entered a demographic bonus period, with the highest proportion of young people ever recorded in the country. Today, young people aged 14 to 25 account for one-third of Viet Nam's total population. However, one-third of young people still face challenges in accessing sexual and reproductive health information and services. The unmet need for contraceptives among unmarried young people is around 35%, while this rate is only 10% for married people.

This video, developed by the UNFPA in Viet Nam in July 2013 is a call from Vietnamese youth for more greater efforts in ensuring comprehensive sexuality education and access to quality sexual and reproductive health information and services.

HA NOI, 11 July 2013 – In the past decade, although Viet Nam has made impressive progress on reducing maternal mortality and increasing access to reproductive health and family planning services, more than a third of young Vietnamese still lack access to the contraception they need. As a result, the rates of unwanted pregnancies and unsafe abortions are still high amongst young girls, especially those who are unmarried.

VTC10-NetViet reporter had a talk with Mr. Arthur Erken, UNFPA representative in Viet Nam on the occasion of World Population Day. This year's theme was adolescent pregnancy. Mr. Erken shares his opinion about the situation in Viet Nam as well as in other countries.
