 HÀ NỘI – Thousands of chief nurses and medical staff nationwide will participate in home and abroad intensive training courses in the next three years, with financial support from Việt Nam’s largest dairy producer Vinamilk.

This move is a key part of the strategic cooperation agreement jointly signed by Vinamilk, CHR Hansen Holding, one of the world's leading nutrition groups from Denmark, and the Vietnam Chief Nursing Club earlier this month.

After the training courses, the trainees will give nutritional healthcare for millions of children and the elderly in Việt Nam.

The training programme will this year kick off with an intensive training series, themed “Prevention and control of Sars-Cov-2 infection, the role of nutrition in health promotion and disease prevention”, held in Hà Nội, HCM City and Huế City in the central province of Thừa Thiên-Huế. Nearly 600 members from frontline hospitals will participate in this programme, focusing on strengthening disease prevention, improving resistance and digestive system for children and the elderly.

According to Chairman of the Vietnam Chief Nursing Club Hoàng Văn Thanh Vinamilk is a leading nutrition company in Việt Nam and belongs to the Top 50 largest dairy companies in the world, with many strengths in research and applications of advanced nutritional solutions reaching international standards in nutritional products for Vietnamese people.

“We believe that accompanying Vinamilk in the next three years will help the club members bring great benefits in improving the quality of clinical nutritional healthcare, thereby helping to take care of nutritional health for millions of people, especially children and the elderly,” Thanh said.
