Minister of Public Health Nguyen Thi Kim Tien on July 27 presented 157 cabinets of medicines to the Fisheries Trade Union of Cam Nhuong commune, the central province of Ha Tinh.

The cabinets contain various kinds of common medicines and medical tools, which will come in handy in case fishermen fail to visit any medical station.

The event is part of a programme launched by the ministry on May 31 in an effort to improve medical care for fishermen, Tien said at the offering ceremony.

On the occasion of the 67th anniversary of War Invalids and Martyrs’ Day (July 27), Tien also visited and presented gifts to three local war invalids before paying tribute to the late Party leaders Ha Huy Tap and Le Duan at Ke Go tourist site and Dong Loc historical relic site.-VNA
