Ca Mau (VNA) – The authorities of the southernmost province of Ca Mau have urged its health sector to improve the quality of healthcare.

Suggested measures include developing a modern health system allowing all people to access basic health services.

The province will encourage the development of non-state health services, expand healthcare at home and increase health insurance coverage.

In 2017, Cau Mau aims to have doctors at all commune-level health centres, reduce the rate of ill-nourished children to 11.8 percent and raise the rate of health insurance coverage to over 80 percent.

In 2016, the province made efforts to develop healthcare infrastructure and provided health checks. All grassroots health centres now meet national standards.-VNA
