PM okays UNICEF-funded comprehensive childcare project

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has approved a UNICEF-funded project on childcare development and renovating the healthcare system in Vietnam. 

The project hopes to strengthen the medical system’s capacity of maternal and child care aiming to expand coverage and improving the quality of integrated early childhood development, including healthcare services, nutrition and hygiene, especially among vulnerable children. 

It will run from 2017-2021 in Hanoi and the provinces of Gia Lai, Kon Tum and Dien Bien, costing more than US$5.1 million in non-refundable aid, with more than VND16 billion (US$761,000) and items worth in excess of VND8 billion sourced from the Vietnamese government. 

The PM asked the Health Ministry to review and carry out the project.
