Delegates cut the ribbon to inaugurate the Vinh Loi commune health station

The Vinh Loi communal health station is the first completed facility within the framework of the Tuyen Quang provincial Rural Development Project, funded by the Republic of Korea (ROK) through the KOICA Office in Vietnam.

The medical station is expected to improve the quality of medical examination and treatment for local people at the grassroots level.

Apart from the health station, two similar medical facilities, six schools, one inter-commune road, seven inter-village roads and three irrigation works are under construction.

The USD 150 million project focuses on empowering women, improving sustainable livelihoods for locals, as well as building  capacity and enhancing the quality of the local healthcare and education sectors, with the aim of comprehensively and sustainably developing disadvantaged communes in the province and bettering lives of local people.
