Author: UNFPA

This report was developed by Ministry of Health, with technical and financial support from UNFPA. The report reviews the current needs, availability, accessibility, acceptability, quality and regulatory framework of midwifery services and practices in Viet Nam, with a vision towards 2030. The report also provides recommendations for midwifery practices in the coming years, including for governance, human resources, financing, service delivery, health information and infrastructure, equipment, and pharmaceuticals. It is our hope that this report proves useful to policy makers, programme managers, health professionals, researchers and donors in designing and implementing effective reproductive health programmes in order to achieve the ultimate objectives of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Sustainable Development Goals in Viet Nam.
