Baseline Study on Older People in Hai Duong and Ben Tre Provinces
2012 Baseline Study on Older People in Hai Duong and Ben Tre Provinces
Years: 2012 - 2013
Supported by UNFPA in Vietnam
Hai Duong and Ben Tre are among the provinces with the highest ageing indices in the Red River Delta and the Mekong River Delta regions in Vietnam, respectively. From 2012- 2016, UNFPA Vietnam Country Office (CO) is supporting Hai Duong and Ben Tre provinces in developing and piloting models on caring for and promoting the role of older people, and conducting cost-effectiveness analyses of such models in order to provide evidence for policy options and proposals for nationwide replication. This study aims to review and evaluate the current situation of older people and related socioeconomic and health aspects and to gather important information about programs caring for the elderly in these two provinces. The study will be completed in March 2013.
