A VND336 billion (US$15.6 million) cancer center which is a branch of Vietnam-Thuy Dien (Vietnam-Sweden) Cancer Hospital was inaugurated yesterday in the northern province of Quang Ninh , aiming to enhance treatment quality and meet demand of treating cancer for people in the Northeast area.
Huynh Cao Hai, deputy head of the Dong Nai Province's Health Department, said he planned to encourage all factories in the province to offer reproductive healthcare services for female workers, especially those with a large number of female workers.
Over 130 workers at Cy Vina Co Company in Long Duc Industrial Park in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh are being treated in many hospitals in the province after suffering from food poisoning symptoms.
Medical clinics in communes are the grassroots of the health sector; however, medical quality in some places has not met people’s treatment demand, reported Health Minister Nguyen Thi Kim Tien at a meeting “Moving toward nationwide healthcare coverage in Vietnam”.
Vietnam ranks 12 over 22 countries which have the high rate of tuberculosis patients in the world and 14 over 27 nations which has the burden of Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, said Vietnamese Ministry of Health on the occasion of celebrating the World Tuberculosis Day and the month-long action program themed “ Vietnam is determined to carry out the national Tuberculosis Prevention Strategies”.
