Last updated on Mar 08, 2024

Summary: The quality of medical care in Vietnam is generally considered to be good, although it may not be on par with the medical care available in the United States. Emergency services are available in most major cities, and ambulances can be called by dialing 115. However, it is important to note that the response time may be slower than in the US, and the quality of care may not be as high.

How are healthcare services Vietnam?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Vietnam, they replied:

"I don't have experience with a hospital stay, so I cannot give an opinion on that topic," commented one expat who moved to Da Nang.

"Healthcare services in Vietnam are provided by both public and private institutions. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is available to all citizens. The quality of public healthcare varies depending on the region, but generally it is considered to be of a good standard. Foreign residents are able to access the public healthcare system, however, they may be required to pay a fee. Expats in Vietnam often use the public healthcare system, as it is generally more affordable than private healthcare. However, some expats opt to use private healthcare due to the higher quality of care and services offered," said one expat.
