The signing ceremony for the aid provision was held in February 5 in Ha Noi.

Since 2012, the World Vision Japan has cooperated with Viet Nam’s Ministry of Health and Dien Bien Province’s Department of Health to use Japan’s non-refundable aid to upgrade health centers in the province.

Speaking at the ceremony, Japanese Envoy Jun Yanagi expected that Viet Nam will bring into full play the effectiveness of the project and develop the model in other localities.
