HA NOI (VNS) — The health ministry said more than 80 doctors have registered for a pilot project designed to encourage young doctors to work in the country's 62 remote and poor districts.

Before starting their voluntary work, the doctors will participate in an 18-month training course in five departments, and will benefit from several preferential policies.

Under the programme, male registered doctors have to work at district medical units for three years, and female doctors have to work there for two years.

The programme, designed to send about 500 young doctors to work in disadvantaged areas, will begin in 2016, and aims to increase the number of healthcare workers at the grassroots level, addressing the lack of doctors in remote areas.—VNS
