HCM City (VNA) – A working delegation from the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan’s Committee for the Development of Women led by member of the House of Representatives Tsuchiya Shinaki, visited a nurse training centre at the 175 Military Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City on July 13.

Shinaki, who is also head of the House of Representatives’ Committee on Science, Technology, and Innovation and deputy head of the Committee on Land and Transport Infrastructure, watched how Japanese experts demonstrated skills to trainee at the Hoa Anh Dao (Sakura) training centre of the hospital and discussed the efficiency of training courses with nurses.

She expressed her wish to learn about the prospect of Vietnam’s medical sector and cooperation programmes between Japan and Vietnam, as well as between Japan and Hospital 175.

Director of the 175 Military Hospital Nguyen Hong Son hoped to receive further support from Japan in key fields such as training for doctors, nurses, technicians and management staff; technological and technical transfer; scientific research; construction of training centres and nursing homes for the elderly; and disaster first aid and medical support.

Established in August 2017, the Hoa Anh Dao Training Centre was a joint effort between Vietnam’s 175 Military Hospital and Japan’s Syasouken Research Institute for the Development of Social Welfare, marking a new stride in medical cooperation on nurse training under the Japanese model.-VNA
