Abstract

With the population of 86 million and good GDP growth in recent decades, the medical market in Vietnam is growing fast. However, most of the medical technology products are imported, and the number of locally manufactured ones is limited and they do not have the high competition capability in term of quality, quantity and types. In this paper, the current product development in Vietnam for diagnosis, surgical planning and treatment in the areas of Rehabilitation, Neurosurgery, Orthopeadic and Dental-Cranio-Maxillofacial surgery is presented. A roadmap for medical technology development in Vietnam is proposed.
