The monograph on “Migration and urbanization in Viet Nam: Situation, trend and differences” is built on the extraction of the sample census data of the 2019 Population and Housing Census as well as the previous censuses. The results of the analysis show that the trend of migration in the last five years has decreased compared to three decades ago. However, the analytical results also continue to confirm evidence collected from previous studies that there is a great contribution of migration into urban areas, especially large cities. Based on the analysis of migration trends, basic characteristics of migrants, their economic activities and their living conditions as well as the impact of migration on urbanization, the monograph also provides development policy suggestions that emphasize the need to pay more attention to migration and urbanization to ensure these activities will contribute best to growth and socioeconomic development in Viet Nam.

COVID-19 threatens to become one of the most challenging tests faced by humanity in modern history. COVID-19 has the potential to take lives, overwhelm health systems, and trigger lasting geopolitical change. The implications of COVID-19 can go far beyond the strain posed on Intensive Care Units and Infectious Disease Control departments.

In countries around Asia and the Pacific, health systems are likely to be challenged to balance the demands of responding directly to COVID-19, while simultaneously engaging in strategic planning and coordinated action to maintain essential health service delivery, mitigating the risk of system collapse. Many countries are currently implementing transmission control measures such as lockdowns, travel bans and social distancing. The consequent disruption of services on already overstretched health systems and the diversion of resources from essential sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services are expected to increase the risk of maternal and child morbidity and mortality, as shown in past humanitarian crises. This technical brief presents estimation of the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on maternal health and family planning in Viet Nam.

In order to make the collected data from the Census to become talking figures, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Viet Nam has collaborated with the General Statistics Office (GSO) to organize the photo voice exhibition “Stories behind the data”.
