Vietnam’s first level-2 field hospital which is in South Sudan for a UN peacekeeping mission will finish its duty in October, 2019. The second level-2 field hospital is preparing carefully and ready for its mission in the African country. This is a new landmark in Vietnam’s participation in the UN’s peacekeeping operations.


Launched late last year, the field hospital No. 2 comprises 63 staff members from the Vietnam Military Medical University. They are rushing around all day for practice to meet the UN requirements in order to replace the first level-2 field hospital in the next six months.

Vietnam’s deployment of the level-2 field hospital no.2 to UN peacekeeping operations will demonstrate the Vietnamese people’s sense of responsibility towards and contribution to keeping global peace. Each of its staff members is also a peace ambassador of the country in the international arena.-VNA
