The second group of Vietnamese military medical officers undertaking the UN peacekeeping mission in South Sudan was seen off at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City on October 15.

The officers are belonging to the Level-2 field hospital, which was set up by the Defence Ministry in 2014 to realise the country’s policy on joining the UN peacekeeping activities in the field of humanitarian activities.

The hospital will replace the second-level field hospital of the UK army in Bentiu, South Sudan, to provide medical care for staffers of the UN peacekeeping mission in South Sudan within one year.

On October 1, the first group of the hospital with 30 members set off for the African country./.
