The Republic of Korea will sponsor a three-year training programme for central Thua Thien-Hue province’s general hospital to improve the quality of its staff.

The programme will be financed by non-refundable aid worth 3.5 million USD from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), which covers the expenses of courses not only in Vietnam but also abroad.

Thua Thien-Hue general hospital was built on loans from the RoK government and began operation in January 2013. With 500 beds and fully equipped with modern technologies, it serves as a satellite facility of the Hue Central Hospital, contributing to easing its problem of overload.-VNA
