EC helps enhance reproductive health care services’ capability


QĐND – Tuesday, April 06, 2010, 20:55 (GMT+7)

A project to enhance the capability of public and private reproductive health services in Vietnam was introduced at a seminar in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue on April 5.


The implementation of the 36-month project under the sponsorship of the European Commission (EC) late last year began in Jan. 2010 in a bid to contribute to poverty reduction through reducing mothers’ fatality in rural and remote areas in Vietnam, which is part of the Millennium Development Goals.


The project is designed to increase the access to and quality of family planning and essential reproductive health care services as well as improve the capability of public and private health establishments in managing and monitoring reproductive health care and family planning services.


Speaking at the seminar, chief representative of Marie Stopes International in Vietnam (MSIVN) Nguyen Bich Hang said that her organisation will closely work with target localities to test the model of combining the state and private sectors in providing reproductive health care at the grass root level.


In addition, MSIVN will cooperate with relevant health services and agencies to issue service cards for medical payments on a trial basis to draw lessons for the Government’s plan of extending health insurance to cover the whole population by 2014.

Giant blanket of solidarity to be made


QĐND – Tuesday, April 06, 2010, 21:6 (GMT+7)

PANO – Two giant woolen blankets, one made in France and the other in Vietnam, will be attached to each other in October on the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi, said Ms. Anna Owhadi-Richardson, the chairwoman of the Da Lat’s Friends’ Assocation Following Yersin’s Footsteps (AD@IY).


This will be the biggest woolen blanket of the world at present. Thousands of 20cmx20cm colorful woolen pieces will be used to make these two giant blankets.  


Anna said, the blanket is not only meaningful for its huge size but demonstrates the friendship between France and Vietnam in general and between people of Montpellier City and Da Lat City and with the capital of Hanoi in particular.


Also, the blanket is seen as a gift to Agent Orange victims of Vietnam. Making it also created some fun for retired elderly people in Montpellier and at the same time helped raise awareness of environmental protection and prevent crimes against nature and people, such as the Agent Orange disaster.
