  • An estimated 22% of ever-married young women aged 18-24in Viet Nam have been beaten by their husbands in their life. 12% have been beaten in the last 12 months.
  • Almost one in four women with children less than 15 years old report that their children have been abused physically by their husbands.
  • More than half of the women who experienced physical violence by husbands also report that their children witnessed the violence at least once.

  • There are many challenges to the health status of adolescents and youth in Viet Nam: HIV and AIDS, non-communicable diseases (chronic health conditions, injuries and mental health issues), substance abuse, and lack of access to quality health services (particularly reproductive health care). Ensuringequity and efficiency of health care for young people is also a significant challenge.
  • Marital and fertility trends are in the process of changing from ‘early’ to ‘late’, a fact that will have considerable impact on the country’s future population and family structure.
  • Data reveals the existence of gender and geographical disparities for marital and fertility indicators. For example, women tend to marry earlier than men and the trend of marrying later is slower for youth in remote and rural areas.

State of the World's Children Report 2011: Factsheet on Young People and Migration in Viet Nam
  • Youth migration is an important part of the growing urbanization process taking place throughout Viet Nam: over one third (38 per cent) of the respondents to the second Survey Assessment of Vietnamese Youth (SAVY II) conducted in 2009 had been away from home continuously for one month or more. Most of these youth who had been away for one month or more did so “to earn living” or “to go to study”. Male youth migrate to earn living more than females, and youth in rural areas migrate more than youth in urban areas.
  • Migration flows within Viet Nam are dominated by young people aged 15-24, and the majority of these are female. This youth migration not only influences the age and gender structure of the population at regional and provincial levels, but also contributes significantly to the on-going urbanization process.
