French volunteer doctors, together with colleagues from Viet Duc Hospital and the Hospital of Post and Telecoms, have presented health equipment to Son Tay General Hospital in the outskirts of Hanoi.

The activity is part of a programme launched by the France-Vietnam Friendship Association (FVFA) to help several hospitals in Vietnam improve their health services.

On this occasion, the delegation also provided health check-ups for patients and considered the records of ten pre-op patients.

FVFA President Cecile Minh said the association has granted medical support to Vietnam since 1992, adding that over the past two decades, the association’s humanitarian and charitable activities have been maintained effectively.

As a result, hundreds of tonnes of goods, drugs, health equipment, wheelchairs, teaching and learning equipment have been transported to Vietnam to assist hospitals and schools in remote areas.

Through the association, the Hospital of Post and Telecoms has signed an agreement with the Dreux Hospital of France, under which Vietnam will send two doctors to the French hospital to improve their professional skills for up to six months.-VNA
