About us

The Tobacco Control Program in Vietnam – entitled “vn0khoithuoc” – was established in 2009 with the mission of protecting Vietnamese people’s health and life against the invisible harms of Tobacco.

Benefited from the management of the Vietnam Public Health Association with technical support of Vital Strategies, vn0khoithuoc provided crucial contributions to the movement aiming at reducing tobacco uptakes, minimizing exposure of women, children, young generation and families from secondhand smoke, and building a smoke-free environment in smoke-free public places as defined by the Tobacco Control Law.

Vital Strategies is a leading global public health organization and a trusted partner of governments and civil society organizations around the world. We provide technical assistance that leads to large-scale, sustainable gains in health. We advocate for evidence- based health policy in national ministries of health and within the offices of city mayors. We help governments create systems that properly record their country’s births and deaths, often for the first time. We create campaigns that change individual health behaviors and build support for legislation ranging from smoke-free cities to national taxes on sugary drinks. And much more.

At our core is a vision of a world where everyone is protected by a strong public health system. To achieve this, we use our deep expertise in epidemiology and surveillance, strategic communication, institutional strengthening, research, evaluation, and policy advocacy. With these proven public health tools, we are primed to take on new opportunities from start to finish and to bring global best practice to new locales.

We have expanded our expertise in noncommunicable disease prevention, environmental health and urban health to make even greater progress on the critical issues of our time. Specific areas of focus include tobacco control, data for health, cardiovascular health, road safety, overdose prevention, air quality, obesity prevention and tuberculosis research.
