Vietnam is experiencing serious fine particulate matter (PM2.5) pollution as a result of local activities and long-range transport (LRT) pollutants. In this article, we summarize and analyze PM2.5 data from ground stations and manual measurements showing PM2.5 status, characteristics and emission sources in the period from 1996 to 2017 in Vietnam. In addition, we provide a brief impact assessment of PM2.5 pollution on public health regarding diseases and deaths. Conscious of PM2.5's harmful effects, Vietnam has been taking steps to mitigate PM2.5 pollution in various forms through efforts by the government, non-governmental organizations, media, communities and individuals, and has obtained initial results. This article presents a comprehensive review of current PM2.5 pollution and its mitigation in Vietnam.
