According to Doctor Nguyen Van Vinh Chau, Vice Director of the HCMC Department of Health, the HCMC People’s Council’s Resolution No.12 dated on August 24 stating the supported policy for the frontline forces ranging from VND1.5 million (US$66) to VND10 million (US$438) per person a month.
Some hospitals such as Binh Dan Hospital, the Children’s Hospital No.1, the District 4’s Hospital have made the payment to their employees while other ones are filling the list to the HCMC State Treasury to do the procedures.
Currently, the hospitals’ revenue has reduced causing the reduction of medical staff’s income. Ho Chi Minh City admitted those issues and will find the solutions to repair them.
