Overview

In 2009, the MOH and HPG unanimously agreed on the key topic, i.e. health workforce in Vietnam, to conduct an in-depth analysis of the quantity and quality of the health workforce and the management of human resources in health care. In Chapter 1, JAHR 2009 provides an update on the Vietnamese health-care system during 2008-2009 and outlines general tasks for 2010-2011

In Chapter 1, JAHR 2009 provides an update on the Vietnamese health-care system during 2008-2009 and outlines general tasks for 2010-2011. This has become a common practice in JAHR reports. To better contribute to annual health planning, the updated health system review in JAHR 2009 has elaborated and covered all 6 basic building blocks of a health delivery system as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). Chapter 1 also presents a brief discussion of the progress in implementing recommendations from JAHR 2007 and JAHR 2008.
The next sections present key contents of the JAHR 2009 report, including: (i) overview of policies on health workforce development, situation and problems; (ii) quantity and distribution of the health workforce; (iii) quality of health the workforce; and (iv) management and use of the health workforce.
The final section of the report presents the conclusions, synthesizing all observations of the Vietnamese health workforce and proposing solutions for priority issues for the 2010 plan and subsequent years.
The report highlights key issues to support the planning process of the MOH, laying a foundation for collaboration and dialogue between the Vietnamese health-care sector and international partners about health workforce-related issues.
Appendices of the report include a summary table on progress towards implementing recommendations from JAHR 2007 and JAHR 2008, a summary of priority issues and solutions for the current year and a table of monitoring indicators.
