The project is a collaboration between the Ministry of Health, UNDP in Việt Nam and Embassy of Japan in Việt Nam with an aim to implement sustainable development goals towards fairness and equality in healthcare among ethnic groups in the country. It includes a series of communication activities that aim to enhance knowledge, understanding and changes in action and habits of people to stop the COVID-19 pandemic, especially among ethnic minorities.

The project’s activities have approached a large number of local officials, health workers, trade unions and small traders in four districts of Mèo Vạc, Đồng Văn, Quản Bạ and Yên Minh, and Hà Giang City.

The project helped local authorities have more essential resources to conduct disease prevention and control and provide local people, especially ethnic traders, with access to healthcare services and knowledge about disease prevention methods.

This will help to reduce the negative effects of COVID-19, so that people can continue to develop economically and sustainably, stabilise their lives and overcome difficulties such as farmland shortages, lack of domestic water and harsh natural conditions.

The series of photos was taken in late 2020 and early 2021 in four highlands districts: Đồng Văn, Mèo Vạc, Yên Minh and Quản Bạ, which are the poorest localities and the most inhabited by ethnic Mông people. The series displays the daily work of traders, especially when they have taken preventive measures for protecting the health and safety of each individual and the community.
