The General Hospital of the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum and the US-based International Paediatric Specialists Alliance for the Children of Vietnam (IPSAC) on Sept. 10 signed an MoU on improving health care for local children.

Under the MoU, the IPSAC will help better the hospital’s doctors’ skills in paediatric surgery, urology, anaesthetic and patient nursing until 2017.

In addition, the alliance will also donate essential medical equipment to the local hospital.

On this occasion, IPSAC specialists also helped Kon Tum’s doctors treat local children staying at the hospital, transferring several normal treatment techniques to them, said Vo Van Thanh, the director of the hospital.

To date, 12 patients have registered to be examined and operated by the IPSAC doctors and specialists, added the director.-VNA
