With funding of €114 million, this is the largest EU Sector Budget Support Operation in Asia. The Financing Agreement for  the EU Health Sector Policy Support Programme phase 2 (EU-HSPSP 2) had been signed  between the European Union and the Government of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in December 2014, with the overall objective “to sustain poverty alleviation and inclusive economic growth in Vietnam through the provision of support for the development of a Vietnamese health care system towards equity, efficiency and improved quality, in line with the country's health sector strategy”. The specific emphasis on equity will be given by focusing on 10 provinces considered to be the poorest: Lai Chau, Son La, Dien Bien, Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Ha Giang, Lao Cai, Cao Bang, Yen Bai and Dak Nong. The EU Health Sector Policy Support Programme phase 2 is the largest EU budget support programme in health in Asia.

To achieve these goals the European Union will transfer 100 million Euro directly to the state budget of the country, which will be distributed by the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Health as budget transfers to ten targeted provinces.   

The European Union Health Facility has been established by the European Union Delegation to Socialist Republic of Vietnam in March 2015 as a part of the actions agreed with the Government of Vietnam within the framework of the EU Health Sector Policy Support Programme phase 2. Its major objective is to support the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Finance in Vietnam for  implementation of the measures foreseen in the Financing Agreement.
