By 2015, 85% of the rural population will enjoy safe water and 100% of schools and medical stations in rural areas have enough safe water to use.
This is the target set in the national program on safe water and rural environmental sanitation for the 2012-2015 period, which has been adopted by the Prime Minister.

The program will be carried out with the mobilization of VND 27.6 trillion from diverse sources./.
