To build the first obstetrics clinic of Vietnam’s L2FHs, the personnel of L2FH Rotation 4 used wood pieces from old crates, meeting requirements for a common obstetrics clinic.

Apart from building the facility, the hospital’s board of directors has actively deployed the “Joining hands for women’s health” program to conduct obstetric and gynecological screening for about 50 high-risk women at the UNMISS.

The clinic meets the requirements of a common obstetrics clinic.
