Name:State of the World's Children Report 2011: Factsheet on Young People and Health in Viet Nam
Description:
  • 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). Ensuring equity 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.
