Changing Demographics and Challenges for Old Age Support in Vietnam


Tóm tắt

Vietnam is currently facing a far-reaching evolution in the age structure of its population. The one-off advantage of demography is reaching its limit, and more attention should be paid to employment policies, old age support, social security and pension. The paper analyzes changing demographics and changes for old age support in Vietnam, and suggests some solutions for the issues, notably: a more coherent approach to old-age support, deeper consolidation of delivery systems in the interests of efficiency, transparency and client friendliness, more humane and fiscally sustainable aged and long-term care systems built around a system of home- and community-based care. The role of government will remain paramount both in short and long terms, but non-state providers would gradually be expected to player more of such a role.
