The beginning of October marked a remarkable milestone in the Danish health collaboration with the Vietnamese Ministry of Health and Thai Binh Province, as they have put together a training programme on diabetes and hypertension for Commune Health Station staff.

In Thai Binh workshops facilitated by Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen were held, with participants from both Thai Binh Department of Health, Thai Binh Centre for Disease Control, and Thai Binh University of Medicine and Pharmacy.

There, the participants worked hard to develop and implement a new training programme on diabetes and hypertension for health staff and which is ‘aligned with national guidelines and international best practices.’

“The initiative reflects our mutual commitment to advancing primary healthcare to tackle life-style-related diseases, which are on the rise in Vietnam and we’re excited to witness its positive impact on the community,” the Embassy concludes on its Facebook post.
