The working paper “Citizens’ Opinions and Experiences with Government Responses to COVID-19 Pandemic in Viet Nam: Findings from round 2 phone-based survey, 2021” was conducted by the Mekong Development Research Institute (MDRI) and UNDP from mid-September to mid-October 2021—about two months after major lockdowns in Ho Chi Minh City, Binh Duong, Dong Nai, the Mekong Delta provinces, and Ha Noi. Through this survey, a randomly selected population of 1,501 respondents reflected on COVID-19’s impact on 1) their well-being; 2) the accessibility and effectiveness of the Government’s relief packages, 3) healthcare, 4) public confidence, and 5) trust in the Government’s responses to the pandemic. The survey raised policy suggestions based on citizens’ expectations for central and local governments in response to possible additional waves of COVID-19 or another pandemic.
