The Vietnamese and Mongolian Ministries of Health will increase cooperation in training, scientific research, pharmaceutical manufacturing, preventive medicine, and traditional medicine.
They will encourage direct cooperation between their hospitals, medical universities, and research institutes.
A document to this effect was signed in Hanoi on June 6 between the two ministries, clarifying the areas of healthcare cooperation over 2013-2015.
Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long noted that medical cooperation between Vietnam and Mongolia has developed well since the two signed the first agreement in 2002.
The annual Vietnam-Mongolia Intergovernmental Committee meetings ensure healthcare remains a focus of the two countries’ relationship.
Long said he hopes updated plans for healthcare cooperation between Vietnam and Mongolia will be realized in the near future.
