In Vietnam, the policy of free healthcare for children under six years of age (FCCU6) has encountered implementation difficulties since its inception and out-of-pocket (OOP) medical expenditures for Vietnamese households continue to be high. We aimed to provide insights into the non-usage of FCCU6 for hospitalization of diarrhea, and assess the risk of catastrophic expenditure for those households who forgo FCCU6.
