Update: December, 19/2012 - 10:34

HA NOI (VNS)— The European Union has disbursed US$13 million this year to support the health sector in Viet Nam under its three-year support programme.

The programme, worth nearly $51 million in total, aims to improve the Vietnamese public health system, making it more efficient and equitable.

Infant mortality rates and malnutrition in children under five are expected to decline as a result, and the proportion of deliveries attended by health staff will likely increase. The project will focus on the nine poor provinces of Bac Kan, Dien Bien, Gia Lai, Lai Chau, Kien Giang, Kon Tum, Son La, Vinh Long and Yen Bai.
