World Bank Discussion Paper No. 376. Though Vietnam has made impressive progress in providing widespread access to basic social services, the quantity and quality of the countrys social service provision have shown signs of deterioration within the last two decades. This paper examines the changing role of the public sector in financing and providing social services and safety nets in Vietnam and assesses the countrys efficiency in targeting public resources to the poor in the wake of the important economic policy reforms initiated in 1989. The author analyzes the sources and uses of funds for education, health, and social transfers and highlights the emerging importance of public sector pricing policy and private out-of-pocket expenditures in social sector financing.
