A study of nonclassified government documents and medical literature discloses that relatively little research or scholarship has been directed toward the problems of civilian war casualties and the medical care provided for them in South Vietnam. War casualties among civilians have been sustained in great numbers since 1965 and continue at high levels today. Treatment facilities and personnel, grossly inadequate to meet needs when hostilities increased, have been improved through American aid under the Agency for International Development, but such efforts have been severely criticized as inadequate in terms of finances, facilities, manpower, and policy.
