The Health Policy Environment in Vietnam: Observations from an Outside Insider

Khoa Truong, Assistant Professor of Department of Public Health Sciences ,Clemson University

RSVP required by February 24 at

The health sector's successes in Vietnam have been described as "legendary" by international donors. However, one can question the objectivity of reports from the government of Vietnam, the World Bank or WHO, and wonder who has paid for a "success story", and at what cost. In this colloquium, Dr. Truong will share his observations of recent socioeconomic development in Vietnam, discuss key issues in the health policy environment, and reflect upon his research experience from a collaborative research project between the University of Queensland and Ministry of Health of Vietnam.
