In Vietnam, forty thousand children a year die needlessly due to emergencies where access to quality care is limited by distance, lack of skills or equipment. Neonatal mortality in Vietnam accounts for more than 50% of all deaths in children under five. The infant mortality rate in Viet Nam is 13.9 deaths per 1,000 live births, which means of every 1,000 babies born, 13.9 babies die before their first birthday. These deaths could be prevented if medical staff were properly trained to diagnose and equipped to treat life-threatening issues like child pregnancy, difficult childbirths, and provide urgent post-natal care.
