WB loans 80 million USD to help improve Vietnam’s basic healthcare

The World Bank on Thursday approved an 80-million-USD loan to help Vietnam improve basic health service quality and access, especially in disadvantaged areas.

The Investing and Innovating for Grassroots Health Service Delivery Project is designed to enable commune health stations to start detecting and managing non-communicable diseases.

It also helps strengthen their existing role in controlling infectious diseases and providing essential maternal, newborn and child health care services.

The project will benefit more than 9 million people in 13 provinces across Vietnam.
