Improving the Health of Vietnam’s Poor: Analysis and Recommendations from a Bank Sector Review

Anil Deolalikar and Richard Myers, June 7, 2000.

The seminar was presented by Richard Myers and Anil Deolalikar who examined a draft poverty-oriented review of Vietnam’s health sector, being undertaken by the World Bank with support from the Australian, Dutch, and Swedish Governments; and plans for a World Bank loan being developed on the basis of the review’s findings. The findings of the review led to a hospital based-based project focus designed to reverse bias toward upper-income groups; and to improve the quality of the services that hospitals offer. Highest priority will be given to hospitals in poor provinces, and to five conditions thought to be especially important for the poor: diarrhea, pneumonia, obstetric care, trauma, and hypertension.
