Health activities are the activities of maintaining, caring for and treating people’s diseases; The development of health services helps people’s quality of life to be improved. Therefore, prioritizing resources for health development is always concerned and valued by countries, especially developed countries always focus on health care for people rather than economic development, therefore spending on health care is always a top priority. Following other countries, Vietnam always attaches importance to the protection, care and improvement of people’s health. This is clearly confirmed in Resolution No. 20-NQ/TW dated October 25, 2017 of the 12th Party Central Committee.

The Covid-19 pandemic has clearly affirmed the importance of the health sector and medical innovation for the mission of taking care of the entire population, as well as for socio-economic recovery and development. Universal health care has improved thanks to advances in healthcare, a wide range of service options, drugs, new technologies, and other factors. In Vietnam, the development of an innovation-focused healthcare sector is crucial to consolidating achievements and improving Vietnam’s health system to solve future challenges.
