No. of pages: 46

Publication date: 2020

Author: MOLISA, GSO and UNFPA

In 2019, Viet Nam conducted its second National Study using the adapted WHO Multi-country Study on Women’s Health and Domestic Violence against Women, which was also used in the 2010 study. This study was managed by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs – MOLISA, in collaboration with the General Statistics Office, with technical and financial support from UNFPA and Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). This study enables a better understanding of what has changed since the first study in 2010, as well as what has not, and what needs to be in place for strengthening gender equality and ending gender-based violence in Viet Nam.

 

The 2019 study has three parts: a quantitative survey, conducted by the General Statistics Office; a qualitative study by the Center for Creative Initiatives in Health and Population - CCIHP; and an economic costing of violence by international experts commissioned by UNFPA.
