Effective public health governance is a key factor in fulfilling human flourishing whose mission is to ensure health equity and health equality for everyone. This idea is to constitute an on-the-ground public health policy in which humans are treated equitably and equally. The feasible health policy must engage a wide range of multi-stakeholder participation from various organizations and sub-populations to create more synergy and collective action to tackle public health threats for the benefit of humankind. Viral hepatitis and liver-related diseases are really a public health threat or an endemic in Vietnam. The burdens of the disease are heavy and disproportionately impact people in underserved regions and subpopulations. This research examines human flourishing and opportunities for quality and equality through a close examination of healthcare in Vietnam. Specifically, Vietnam’s centralized healthcare system with unmet needs for viral hepatitis and its socioeconomic and humanistic burdens must be transformed by effective poly-centric healthcare governance to save more lives. This research investigates the importance of poly-centric healthcare governance as an effective decentralized healthcare system to help eliminate viral hepatitis by promoting decision-making distributed across multiple stakeholders. This case study in Vietnam illuminates how poly-centric healthcare governance allows the participation of more and more people serving in healthcare service roles bringing greater competition in viral hepatitis screening, vaccination, and treatment. This engagement accelerates the reduction of diseases and health disparity to allow for human flourishing.
