Medical suppliesMedical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Vietnam is below average compared to the world population. The country provides 2.6 hospital beds per 1,000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 79,900 physicians in Vietnam, there are about 0.82 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants and in the EU is 3.57.
Through medical care, the mortality rate of major known diseases can be reduced as far as possible. For example, only about 21 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
