Abstract: An important factor for monitoring health transition is the collection of valid and reliable population data over time.1 However, given the weaknesses of the national health information systems in low- and middle-income countries such as Vietnam, especially in the area of generating high-quality population-based information, health and demographic surveillance systems (HDSSs) have been shown to generate high-quality population-based data and scientific evidence on the levels, patterns, and trends in health and health care transitions in a country.1,2 One such HDSS is the Chi Linh Health and Demographic Surveillance System (CHILILAB), located in Chi Linh district, Hai Duong province, Vietnam, which was established in 2004. It is a member of the International Network of field sites for continuous Demographic Evaluation of Populations and Their Health (INDEPTH) ( Based on the HDSS data from the latest survey conducted in 2016 of CHILILAB, this supplement presents analyses of the levels and patterns of health and health care transitions in Chi Linh district, Hai Duong province of Vietnam.
