Moreover, the Deputy Secretary said from August 23, the Prime Minister has directed to send medical workers to Ho Chi Minh City for supporting the city’s grass-roots health care facilities. Currently, Ho Chi Minh City has established more than 500 mobile medical stations which have greatly helped big hospitals.
For the long-term solution, Ho Chi Minh City must strengthen the health system, especially the grass-roots medical centers and hospitals in districts to meet dwellers’ demand for medical examination and treatment.
