The Health Department of northern mountainous Cao Bang province and the Luxembourg Agency for Development Cooperation on June 25 inaugurated a new health centre in the Dam Thuy commune, Trung Khanh district.

The centre, spread over an area of 950, was built with an investment of more than 2.2 billion VND (104,000 USD), from Luxembourg's development grant.

It is expected to provide better healthcare to about 5,000 people, mostly from the Tay ethnic group in the commune.

The healthcare centre is part of Luxembourg's support to the healthcare policy for the poor in the northern provinces of Cao Bang and Bac Kan.

Under the project, the construction of other 11 healthcare centres, worth 26.8 billion VND (1.25 million USD), is scheduled to finish next month in the two provinces.-VNA
