The Irish Haemophilia Society will visit Vietnam from March 19-23 to offer specialized assistance in treating haemophilia.
The visit is under the framework of friendship activities between the Vietnam Society for Congenital Bleeding Disorders (founded in 2007) and the Irish Haemophilia Society.
Based on their 43 years of experience, representatives from the Irish society will train members of the Vietnamese society in organizing volunteers and fundraising activities.
The Irish partners will also help people with haemophilia gain opportunities to exchange information, support each other in living with the disease, and become useful integrated citizens in the community.
During their stay in Vietnam, the Irish delegation will visit the Blood Transfusion and Haematology Hospital, Cho Ray Hospital, and Paediatric Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City and take part in opening a new branch of the Vietnam Society for Congenital Bleeding Disorders in the south.
