About 200 students of the Hue University have taken part in a marathon in Hue city, central Thua Thien-Hue province, in response to the Global Day of Action for Child Survival (October 23).

The race was organised by Save the Children on October 20, alongside similar events held in other countries across the globe.

The activities aim to improve the community’s awareness of care for mothers’ and children’s health as well as call on policy makers to invest more in the healthcare system, particularly in rural areas.-VNA
