Rapid assessment on the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 on children and families in Viet Nam
This rapid assessment is part of UNICEF Viet Nam’s comprehensive support to the Government of Viet Nam to inform its policy-making in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This assessment was completed by a dedicated research team from Ha Noi University of Public Health led by Vice Rector, Prof. Hoang Van Minh with support of key researchers Dr. Tran Thi Phung and Ms. Nguyen Bao Ngoc.

Special appreciation is due to all key informants and local authorities in Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City and Vinh Phuc province for their participation and support. We would also like to thank the interviewers who contributed to the data collection process.
