Vietnam is fast becoming a popular choice amongst expats as the country offers the ideal combination of good earning potential, low cost of living and high quality of life. Expats moving to Vietnam will find a healthcare system which combines aspects of Eastern and Western medicines to treat most medical issues.
Plans are currently underway to develop a universal healthcare system to cover all those legally residing in Vietnam for basic medical care. As it stands, most Vietnamese citizens have to pay for medical services themselves at both public and private hospitals. In many cases, people that can afford it opt to use private facilities as these tend to be better equipped and more efficient.
