The government will continue to invest in UHC to cover the Vietnamese population with an insurance plan. Vietnam intends to provide health insurance for its major population by 2020. Owing to increase in insurance coverage, clinical laboratories, especially hospital laboratories will witness a rise in clinical lab tests. The government’s focus on specific non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancer prevention will continue. Hospitals will develop satellite departments to relieve the burden of over crowdedness. Primary care clinics are expanding within clinical testing in Vietnam by upgrading their testing equipment and offering more testing options, while leveraging their network of chain clinics to capture a wider consumer market.

There has been a rise in incidence of communicable diseases such as HIV, TB, Hep-B and Hep-C due to lack of awareness, delayed vaccination in children. Vietnam is in need of rapid testing for Multidrug-resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB), with lab development supported by the government and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Since incidence and prevalence of AIDS is high in Vietnam, the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention initiated development of key central and provincial labs for HIV testing. Rise in disease awareness campaigns about the advent, cause and prevention of common diseases have led to people proactively opting for clinical lab tests to ascertain diseases.
