The Socio-Economic Impacts of COVID-19 on Children and Families in Viet Nam
Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, and Bac Giang province in focus
Entering the third year of the pandemic, children and families in Viet Nam have experienced multitudes of challenges in the face of ongoing and new global socio-economic, political, and environmental volatility. Understanding the extent to which families with children in Viet Nam are protected from, and resilient in the face of, large-scale crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic is critical to provide updated evidence to inform social spending which promotes and protects investments in sustainable human capital development. Therefore, a follow-up study on the socio-economic impacts of covid 19 on children and families in Viet Nam was commissioned by UNICEF Viet Nam in partnership with Social Policy Research Institute.
