  • Trends in Socioeconomic Inequalities in Full Vaccination Coverage among Vietnamese Children aged 12-23 Months, 2000-2014: Evidence for Mitigating Disparities in Vaccination

    There has been no report on the situation of socioeconomic inequalities in the full
    vaccination coverage among Vietnamese children. This study aims to assess the trends and changes in the socioeconomic inequalities in the full vaccination coverage among Vietnamese children aged
    12–23 months from 2000 to 2014. Data were drawn from Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (2000, 2006, 2011, and 2014). Concentration index (CCI) and concentration curve (CC) were applied to quantify the degree of the socioeconomic inequalities in full immunization coverage. The prevalence of children fully receiving recommended vaccines was significantly improved during
    2000–2014, yet, was still not being covered. The total CCI of full vaccination coverage gradually decreased from 2000 to 2014 (CCI: from 0.241 to 0.009). The CC increasingly became close to the equality line through the survey period, indicating the increasingly narrow gap in child full
    immunization amongst the poor and the rich. Vietnam witnessed a sharp decrease in socioeconomic inequality in the full vaccination coverage for over a decade. The next policies towards children from vulnerable populations (ethnic minority groups, living in rural areas, and having a mother with low education) belonging to lower socioeconomic groups may mitigate socioeconomic inequalities in full vaccination coverage.

    © 2019 World Heart Federation (Geneva) Background: Stakeholder engagement is crucial for conducting high-quality implementation research as well as for the incorporation and adoption of health interventions and policies in the community. Objectives: This study sought to build a mutually rewarding collaboration between stakeholders in Vietnam and investigators in the United States. Methods: A collaboration was established between investigators from several institutions in Vietnam and the University of Massachusetts Medical School that was built on mutual trust, cross-cultural learning, and shared experiences. This collaborative arrangement has led to sustainable stakeholder engagement in Vietnam. We formed a multidisciplinary transnational research team and maintained regular contact both online and in person. We also conducted a needs assessment study, in which several focus group discussions and in-depth interviews of stakeholders in Vietnam were carried out. Results: The formal collaboration between investigators in Vietnam and the University of Massachusetts Medical School began in 2011 and has strengthened over time. The U.S. team provided expertise in study and intervention design, data collection and analysis, and trial implementation, whereas the team in Vietnam brought a deep understanding of local health care delivery systems and expertise in the delivery of health care interventions at the grassroots level. Our initial partnership has now grown to include committed individuals at the government, academic, and community levels including the Vietnam Ministry of Health, key governmental and nongovernmental research institutions and agencies, medical and public health universities, and communities in rural settings. The needs assessment study found that there are important gaps in the delivery of hypertension management practices in many rural communities in Vietnam and that stakeholders are fully engaged in our ongoing, community-based, hypertension-control project. Conclusions: Multiple layers of stakeholders and communities in Vietnam are fully engaged with, and have contributed significantly to, our ongoing hypertension control research project in Northern Vietnam.

    Tobacco smoking is a global public health issue. It exists everywhere, both in the developed and developing countries, requiring special attention from the whole society, not only health sector to help curtail use and promotion. In Vietnam, very high smoking rates among different sub-populations have been challenging public health researchers and tobacco control implementers. However, no studies have focused on smoking among Vietnamese health care providers. Despite being non-smoking exemplars, many health care providers in many countries including Vietnam, do smoke, posing a great concern for government health officials and advocates. Smoking among health care providers may diminish as tobacco control policies are put in place and smoking cessation is readily available, thus affecting smoking practice at workplace and patients’ smoking behaviors. This study, therefore, is to investigate smoking patterns among Vietnamese medical students and health professionals, and examine their smoking knowledge, beliefs, attitudes and practices. This is a cross-sectional study, employing both qualitative and quantitative methods, on a sample size of 4,701 medical students and 2,151 health workers from the three largest hospitals of the three main regions of Vietnam - North, Center and South. Two self-administered structured questionnaires were used to collect data, one for medical students and the other for health workers. Descriptive and inferential statistical tests were applied in data analysis. The findings revealed that the smoking rate among medical students was much higher than that among health workers (25.5% versus 13.4%). Despite a not so high smoking rate of health professionals, it is different by age, sex and region. Smoking rate was highest in the 30-39 age group, and in the North, and lowest in the South. Males smoked much more than females. Physicians smoked more than other health care provider groups (nurses, dentists, and others). For medical students, males also smoked much more than females, and increased by a rise in age group and academic year. Although smoking rates among medical students and health professionals were not high, their extent of smoking was alarming (nearly 10 cigarettes/day, and over 50% of both respondents smoked everyday). The qualitative studies showed that the reason for smoking was mainly attributed to habits and addiction, and females smoked less than their male counterparts because it is customary that smoking among Vietnamese women is socially unacceptable, except for Hue city-based women. In general, both respondents had a good knowledge of smoking hazards. However, medical students had a better perception of passive smoking than that of active smoking (over 91% vs nearly 87%), but the opposite applies for health professionals (over 67% vs a bit over 99%). Interestingly, medical students’ beliefs in hazards of smoking and their attitudes towards smoking control were closely associated with smoking behaviour, and not knowledge. There was a big gap between health care providers’ knowledge on, beliefs in, attitudes towards smoking and their practice of quitting (good at knowledge and bad at practice of quitting). There was a robust relationship between health professionals’ knowledge and their smoking behaviour. Noticeably, students’ exposure to smokers was closely linked with smoking behaviour. Medical students’ costs for smoking were relatively high against their living costs. Students’ access to anti-tobacco messages was largely via TV (around 44.4%, on average), while that to schools was modest (about 9% on average). Health professionals’ need for more training in anti-tobacco information was great, and their recommendations for reducing smoking drew upon mainly health education and putting tobacco control policy and law into practice. The above findings should inform policy making body for tobacco control in Vietnam. If these controls are successful, more health care providers are projected to quit smoking, as well as not to start smoking.
