The medical equipment, worth more than VND980 million including one ventilator and 17 injectormats has been transferred to the Newborns Respiratory Care Department under the Khanh Hoa General Hospital.

The donation is part of activities of the Australian Direct Aid Programme for Vietnam, aiming to improve child healthcare services and minimise the rate of child mortality in the province and its vicinity.

The move is a step towards ensuring access to healthcare for local children, said Australian Consul General to Ho Chi Minh City John McAnulty.
