Hoang Thèn Commune is amongst the poorest communes of Phong Thổ District in the northern mountainous province of Lai Châu. The majority of the population is ethnic minority people with low education level and little familiarity with modern medicine. The local health officials would frequently need to visit the villages in the commune to disseminate information on the Government’s expanded vaccination programme, maternal healthcare and infectious diseases. — VNA/VNS Photo Công Tuyền
