Australia donates ophthalmic equipment to Vietnam

VNIO Director receives equipment donation

Addressing the donation ceremony, Deputy Minister of Health Nguyen Thi Xuyen stated that in recent years, the ophthalmology sector, particularly VNIO, has received great support from the government of Australia and the Australian embassy in Hanoi.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) for co-operation in ophthalmology was signed between VNIO and SAIO in May 27, 2010. Since that time, many co-operative activities have taken place, including training Vietnamese ophthalmologists in Australia, collaborating in scientific research and organising seminars on neuro-ophthalmology, eye pediatrics and retina disease in Vietnam.

The two sides will continue to strengthen co-operation in training, technology transfers, and scientific and community eye care research.
