HA NOI (VNS) — Ha Noi's health sector will carry out a campaign providing free medical checkups and treatment until the end of February.

The campaign, which marks the 60th Vietnamese Doctors' Day (February 27), includes surgeries for elderly patients with cataracts and children with cleft palates and heart disease.

On the first day of the campaign, Duc Giang General Hospital gave free checkups, treatment and medicine to 300 people in Me Linh District. A similar humanitarian campaign co-organised by the Vietnam Red Cross (VRC) and the Ministry of Health, which aims to benefit more than one million poor people each year, has been underway since November. — VNS
