Qualitative Research into the Root Causes of Child Abandonment and Child Relinquishment in Vietnam

This study is a follow up to recommendations of UNICEF and ISS made following a 2009 study on adoption practices and procedures in Vietnam. Information included in this report gives voice to the biological families, which are too often the silent actor in adoption matters, but also sheds light on some concrete reasons that could compel families to relinquish their child such as lack of access to information and services, remote working place, economic distress, etc.
