Sweden To Help Boost Vietnamese Health Care System Further

Sweden has pledged to work with Vietnam across a range of health services including primary health care, care for cancer patients and the treatment of hospital waste.
The cooperation plan was announced by Swedish Ambassador to Vietnam Rolf Bergman at celebrations for the 40 th anniversary of Vietnam-Sweden health cooperative ties in Ha Noi on March 11.
The Ambassador said the two countries have cooperated on primary health care since the 1980s, and it will remain a focus of future cooperation.
In recognising Viet Nam ’s developments in healthcare, the diplomat said his country’s health cooperation with Vietnam has shifted from “development cooperation” to “cooperation on more equal terms and for mutual benefit”.
Sweden has also assisted Vietnam in building health policies and institutions in line with the nation’s development.
In human resources development, Sweden has financed training courses for more than 40,000 Vietnamese health workers at home and 200 others abroad.
At the two-day health cooperation celebration, Vietnamese and Swedish officials discussed plans for future cooperation, including cancer care and hospital waste disposal.
