Child, maternal and newborn health in Vietnam has improved markedly over the last couple of decades. However, there are disparities between the rich and the poor, the Kinh majority and ethnic minorities, and between urban and rural areas. A broad range of professional visits and meetings with local midwives will provide excellent insight into midwifery, maternal and child health in Vietnam. The professional programme is balanced by a wide range of cultural visits with ample opportunity to experience the beauty, culture and history of Vietnam and enjoy its fabulous cuisine.
