Abstract [en]

The prevalence of asthma in adults may have increased in both urban and rural Vietnam, as the few previous estimates have found 2% of adults having asthma. Half of men in Hanoi and two-thirds in Bavi were smokers versus a few percent of women in both areas. Bronchitic symptoms were common in both men and women.
