Medical Oxygen Supplier Landscape in Vietnam

In 2020, the government of Vietnam successfully prevented widespread transmission of the COVID-19 virus in the country, thus avoiding an oxygen shortage crisis, through implementation of an effective prevention strategy. However, the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus caused the number of cases to sharply increase, and cases are starting to rise again as the country enters the new “normal” phase. Therefore, it is crucial to understand Vietnam’s oxygen supply capacity to effectively respond to any challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic or another disease outbreak of a similar scale may bring in the coming months or years.

This report examines the state of medical oxygen supply in Vietnam and offers insights into the strengths and weaknesses of the oxygen supply system. In addition, the document provides an overview of medical oxygen consumption in Vietnam before and during the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as recommendations for enhancing equitable oxygen access. Information in this report may be used by local government decision-makers for oxygen planning purposes, as well as other low- and middle-income country decision-makers intending to implement oxygen solutions in their respective countries in the near future.
