APMHE-2015 held to exchange experience

Vietnamese Army’s Medical Corps and a US counterpart co-organized the Asia Pacific Military Health Exchange 2015 (APMHE-2015) themed “Global health cooperation” in the central city of Da Nang from September 14-18.
 
The event was attended by 500 delegates from 24 countries and territories worldwide and the International Committee on Military Medicine.
 
The event offered a chance for scientists and experts working in the medical sector in the Asia Pacific region to exchange experience, thus promoting cooperation in military health in particular and healthcare more broadly.

It will also serve as a venue for participating countries and territories to discuss measures to bolster their connections in preventing disasters and diseases and providing humanitarian assistance, especially in areas related to global health security.
 
As many as 130 scientific reports with 103 reports from Vietnamese representatives were presented at the event. Most of them focused on external and internal medicine, infections, disease prevention, community healthcare, personnel training traditional medicine and the application of advanced technology in healthcare.
