COVID-19 Response

 

Citizens’ Opinions and Experiences with Government Responses to COVID-19 Pandemic in Viet Nam

The working paper “Citizens’ Opinions and Experiences with Government Responses to COVID-19 Pandemic in Viet Nam” was conducted by the Mekong Development Research Institute (MDRI) and UNDP in the last quarter of 2020. It aims to understand how the Vietnamese citizens have perceived and experienced the measures to contain the coronavirus adopted by central and local governments from governance and public service provision angles; and, to suggest policy actions for central and local governments in response to possible next waves of the COVID-19 pandemic or a similar pandemic. The research used 2019 PAPI sample to conduct the survey in order to have some comparative perspectives with pre-Covid-19 arrival in Viet Nam in 2020.
