In 2013, the UNFPA, in partnership with GSO and MOLISA, commissioned a secondary analysis of data from the National Study on Domestic Violence, which was conducted by GSO in 2010. This report should be seen as a supplement, or 'Part 2', of the report "Keeping silent is dying" - Results from the National Study on Domestic Violence against Women in Viet Nam. The study intends to shed some more light on the reasons why in the same cultural context, some women experience more violence by their husbands than do others. This understanding should help the government design more effective interventions and develop necessary policies to address VAW in a more comprehensive manner.Full review

Furthermore, health providers’ illegal provision of fetal sex determination and sex selection must also be addressed.
