The construction of the health centre was undertaken through a partnership between the Tra Vinh People’s Committee, Hanwha Life Insurance, ChildFund Korea and ActionAid Vietnam.
The new Ward 9 Health Station includes nine treatment rooms, providing clean, safe and private facilities for patients with a range of health conditions. The new treatment rooms include a room dedicated for obstetric and gynecological treatment, to ensure that women coming for these services can have privacy and prevent exposure to diseases for new babies.
Hyeong-Jin Lee, Director of ChildFund Korea Seoul Regional Office shared at the ceremony, “The involvement of stakeholders from the local community throughout the process shows how important this new centre will be. By supporting the building of this health centre, we hope to improve healthcare for children and their families in Tra Vinh – contributing to lower maternal and infant mortality rates and better access to quality healthcare for all.”
