Young doctors volunteer to work in distant areas

The Ministry of Health on Tuesday assigned seven volunteer doctors to work in disadvantaged regions like Cao Bang, Lai Chau, Ha Giang, and Dien Bien as part of a pilot project sending newly graduated doctors to the nation’s 62 poorest districts.

The doctors have all worked at central hospitals. Health Minister Nguyen Thi Kim Tien said: The Ministry will send doctors with intensive training who have obtained practice certificates before being assigned to work in poor districts.

14 out of 154 doctors involved in the pilot project have previously worked in disadvantaged areas.
