The 6th Vietnam-US Pediatrics Conference officially opened in the Bach Mai General Hospital, Hanoi, on March 30, bringing together leading domestic and foreign pediatric experts.
The two-day event serves as a forum for participants to share experience in diagnosing and treating diseases for children relating to pediatric emergency, respiratory, neonatal care, hematological diseases in children and poisoning.
Prof. Nguyen Gia Khanh, Vice President of the Vietnam Pediatric Association, affirmed the Vietnamese health sector has promoted international cooperation in the field and many advanced technologies and techniques have been successfully applied in Vietnam, contributing to saving many children from fatal diseases.
The periodic organisation of the conference helped improve the professional ability of Bach Mai hospital’s medical staff and promote connection with the US side, which sees strong development in pediatric treatment.
Studies presented at the five events have become precious materials for Vietnam, and been applied in medical examination and treatment, and research and application activities in the country.
Associate Prof. PhD Nguyen Quoc Anh, Director of the Bach Mai hospital, said the hospital’s pediatric ward always closely coordinates with domestic and foreign hospitals to take modern technologies into examination and treatment for children suffering life-threatening diseases.
The hospital has annually shared experience with delegations of experts from countries with developed medicine like the UK, France, and the US, he said, adding that enhanced coordination among wards in the hospital has also contributed to caring and treating patients.
