Joining the corporation’s healthcare program, Deputy Chairman of the People’s Committee of Phaxay district Souk Chay said that hamlets where healthcare program was conducted are difficult localities in Laos. The majority of the population is ethnic minority people. Because of slow economic growth, locals’ life is facing various difficulties, and healthcare services are poor. Over the past time, the corporation’s doctors and nurses have fostered dissemination to enhance locals’ awareness of and responsibility in maintaining hygienic routines and taking care of their own health; preserving and upholding the solidarity and special friendship between the two countries in general and between the Economic Cooperation Corporation and the local party committees, authorities, and people of localities where its units are stationed. These efforts have contributed to building a borderline of peace, friendship, and prosperity.
