CAO BANG (VNS) — The northern mountainous Cao Bang Province's Health Department and the Luxembourg Agency for Development Cooperation this morning ( June 25) inaugurated a new health centre in the Dam Thuy Commune, Trung Khanh District.

The centre, spread over an area of 950 square metres, was built with an investment of more than VND2.2 billion, or US$104,000, from Luxembourg's development grant.

It is expected to provide better healthcare to about 5,000 people, mostly from the Tay ethnic group in the commune.

Under the project, the construction of other 11 healthcare centres, worth VND26.8 billion or $1.25 million, is scheduled to finish next month in the two provinces. — VNS
