HCM CITY — Thousands of workers at Pou Sung Vietnam's factory in Dong Nai Province took part in a health fair to mark International Women's Day last Saturday.
The fair provided free health services to female workers, like gynecological examinations, ultrasound tests, and contraceptives.
Through games, the workers were told about contraceptive methods, sexually transmitted infections, and unwanted pregnancies.
A similar fair was held on Friday for workers at Foster Electric Vietnam in Binh Duong Province.
The fairs are part of a three-year project, which has been provided US$1.6 million by the EU and began last year.
It is implemented by the UK-based NGO Marie Stopes International Vietnam, the Centre for Community Reproductive Health in Viet Nam, and provincial departments of health.
At least 160,000 women workers in eight factories in the provinces of Binh Duong and Dong Nai will be provided reproductive health services. — VNS
