Vietnam has been facing an increasing burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) over the last several decades. Among NCDs, CVD now represents the leading cause of death in Vietnam, accounting for approximately one third of all deaths, while research capacity in NCDs in the country is still limited and faces numerous challenges. This training project builds research capacity for Vietnamese health professionals and public health workers to work on NCD- and CVD-related research to transform public health practice and policy.
