Yonsei University from the Republic of Korea (RoK) on October 10 donated medical equipment worth over 3.5 billion VND (164,500 USD) to the Quang Nam Paediatrics Hospital in the central province of the same name.

In addition to the medical equipment, which was channelled through the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), Yonsei University has so far this year organised many training courses on paediatric care for nurses and doctors of the Vietnamese hospital.

With the university’s funding, a doctor of the Quang Nam hospital has been sent to the Hanoi-based Paediatrics Hospital for professional skill improvement.

Meanwhile, central doctors have been dispatched to the local hospital to provide lectures there.-VNA
