Slaughterhouses moved to meet hygiene laws
HA NOI — Fourteen of 26 slaughterhouses owned by the Dong Thinh Agricultural Service Co-operative in Ha Noi have been moved to Minh Hien Co's slaughter house grounds in Thanh Oai suburban district.
The resettlement was aimed to ensure the slaughterhouses met hygiene standards, said the Ha Noi Industry and Trade Department. Ha Noi authorities had previously decided to close down all of the Dong Thinh Co-operative's slaughterhouses because of poor hygiene.
No doctors on duty at some commune clinics
HCM CITY — The city's Department of Health has expressed concerns over the lack of doctors on duty at many of the 332 medical clinics located in communes.
Many of the medical clinics often have no doctor on duty. Even in District 1, in the heart of the city, only 50 per cent of the clinics have doctors. Their regular staff consists of a group of medical orderlies and nurses.
Although equipment and facilities at district level clinics have improved in recent years, medical orderlies and nurses do not have the skills to provide specialised treatment such as obstetric and paediatric services. — VNS
