Specifically, in Article 3 of Vietnam's Circular 02/2021/TT-BYT stipulating the tasks of population collaborators, including

- Population collaborators, together with village health workers and other program collaborators in the area, are responsible for propagating and mobilizing on population work, hygiene and disease prevention, and primary health care for people in the area under their management.

- Directly propagate, mobilize, and advise on population for people in the area in charge.

- Provide condoms and oral contraceptives to each household in accordance with regulations; market, socialize, and socialize reproductive health care products; and provide family planning and population services in accordance with regulations.

- Check and monitor the maintenance and implementation of population content of households in the management area.

- Implement the regime of initial recording, data collection, and making periodical and extraordinary reports on the population according to current regulations; providing data for commune health stations; making diagrams and charts; and managing the number of households in terms of population in the management area.

- Preserve and use documents (books, report forms, etc.) related to assigned tasks.

In addition, population collaborators will also have the following benefits:

- The monthly allowance for population collaborators shall be decided by the Provincial People's Council and guaranteed by the local budget according to regulations.

- Each population collaborator is equipped with working tools, including: a communication bag, a portable speaker, a flashlight, a raincoat, and other tools suitable to local conditions and financial capacity.

- Typical population collaborators who have made active and enthusiastic contributions to population work are encouraged, rewarded, and honored to participate in regional and inter-regional competitions, conferences, and seminars to exchange working experiences.
