The coordination office of the National Target Program of New-Style Rural Area Building reported that of the total budget, 61.6% came from credit loans, 16.4% from international assistance, 9.1% from the national budget and the remaining 12.9% from local budget and the private sector.

Through communication campaigns, hygiene practices, especially in rural areas, have been changed, improving the rural environment.

The program also called for the involvement of political and social organizations to improve the lives of rural people. Many private enterprises invested in building clean water projects in Ha Nam, Hung Yen, Hai Duong, Thai Binh, Long An, Tien Giang and Dong Thap provinces.

About 85% of the rural population now have access to fresh water, about 65% of rural households have hygienic latrines and 94% of schools and 96% of medical clinics in rural areas have clean water supply facilities.

However, there were still shortcomings in the program, including little access to water and sanitation supply, inefficient management and maintenance of water supply systems, and investment poverty./.
