By international standards, and especially given its relatively low per capita income, Vietnam has achieved substantial reductions in, and low levels of, infant and under-five mortality. Review existing evidence and provide some new evidence bearing on the question of whether under the economic liberalization program known as Doi Moi this reduction in child mortality has been sustained. Conclude that it has, but that the gains have been concentrated heavily among the better-off. As a result, socioeconomic inequalities in child survival are evident in Vietnam.
