HA NOI (VNS) — US Ambassador Ted Osius and Minister of Health Nguyen Thi Kim Tien inaugurated the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at the General Department of Preventive Medicine in Ha Noi yesterday.

The centre will connect the health ministry to domestic and international partners in response to public health emergencies of international concern, preventing them from spreading, Minister Tien said.

"The Vietnam EOC is an example of 20 years of the US and Vietnamese governments working closely together as committed partners to build upon the foundation that led to the Comprehensive Partnership and the recent Global Health Security Agenda. It will take many nations, working together, to secure the health and future of all of our children. That is why global health security is so important," Osius said. — VNS
