VIETNAM HEALTH CARE AND HOPITALS
 
I: Vietnam Healthcare
 

Vietnam goverment has achieved great progress in National healthcare since 1999. They have been working on make free healthcare  available to all citizens. Hospitals and clinics in major cities uphold standards comparable to  developed countries, in rural areas quality is still low. There is also big gap between public and private healthcare standards. Whereas public healthcare is basic and probably of a lower standard than travellers are used to, private healthcare is up to date and as modern as in developed countries. Moreover, private facilities are capable of treating a wider range of diseases and conditions than public facilities. The vast majority of expats living and working in Vietnam rely on private insurance to help cover any medical bills. Foreigners health plans should also cover medical evacuation should more specialised care become necessary. Many wealthy Vietnamese, and expats, are transferred to Bangkok or Singapore for treatment. Clinics and practices catering to locals may not accept international insurance and staff generally only speak Vietnamese. Medical professionals targeting expatriates accept international insurance and tend to also speak English or French. The latter charge more money than the former, but prices are still cheaper than in Western countries
Communicable Diseases
 Vietnam has a high burden of tuberculosis (more than 40 cases per 100,000 people) and HIV (285 per 10,000 people). Moreover, expats are at risk of hepatitis A and B, and also typhoid and dengue fever, malaria and rabies in Vietnam. The most recent cholera outbreak was in 2008, with no deaths reported. However, other bacterial diarrhea infections are still very common, especially in rural area
Recommended vaccinations
 If you’re thinking of moving to Vietnam you should see your doctor eight weeks before your departure date. It is advised you get vaccinations against the following diseases before going to Vietnam:

 • Routine childhood vaccines
• Hepatitis A
 • Typhoid fever
 • Rabies (for expats working with animals or those undertaking activities such as caving or camping where contact with bats may occur.)
• Japanese encephalitis Malaria is present only in rural areas in Vietnam. It is not present in cities or in the Mekong delta. You may need to take antimalarial tablets, depending on which region you are moving to - your doctor will be able to advise you.
