Vietnam has made significant progress in improving the populationís health parallel to its economic development. An average Vietnamese could now expect to live to 75 years, compared to 70 years in the 1990s. This is relatively high compared to countries with similar GDP per capita. As people live longer, both the public and private sectors have been striving to meet the populationís growing healthcare demands. For example, the number of hospitals in Vietnam is rising fast, especially in the number of private facilities.
