This paper aims to describe the epidemiology of non-fatal unintentional injuries and estimate its risk and risk factors of injury over the period of 10 years starting from 2002 in Filabavi, Hanoi, Vietnam. Cluster sampling was applied in which thirty clusters were selected randomly with probability proportionate to size to reach 23,807 household members among 51,204people within Filabavi. Door to door approach in which the head of each household was interviewed quarterly. This study showed that risk of unintentional injuries in rural area of Bavi is decreasing overtime from 2002 to 2011and decreased at all age groups. Injury risk among male was higher than that among female but went in reverse way from age 60 and above. It waslikely that group from 0-4 years old suffering the least risk of unintentional injuries compared to other age groups. Children at age from 5 to 14 suffered the highest risk of unintentional injuries. Stand second high risk wasgroup of labor workforce who are from 15 to 59, and the third high risk wasgroup of elderlies from 60 and above. Although injury risk decreased overtime, the poor and middle classes always get much higher risk of injuries than the rich. Therefore, information, education and communication (IEC) about risk of unintentional injuries should be focused on the children at their school-age,on people at their workforce age, and on the elderliesfrom 60 and above, especially on female and people living in the poor conditions
