Central Highlands provinces will devise a number of approaches to improve their healthcare services, according to the Steering Committee for the Central Highlands.

The efforts include conducting tailor-made local trainings to ensure a qualified staff contingent for healthcare centres in communes and wards.

They also offer incentives to lure health officers to work in remote and rural areas of the region while actively mobilising resources to develop healthcare facilities.

Publicity campaigns have also been organised in remote and rural areas to raise ethnic minority groups’ awareness of the benefits of health insurance.

Nearly all communes in the region have healthcare centres. More than 66.25 percent meet national standards on facilities and staff quality, according to the Committee.

They have effectively conducted national strategic programmes on health protection, including vaccinations, Vitamin A consumption and deworming services.-VNA
