Head of the Party Central Committee's Commission for Information and Education Nguyen Trong Nghia, scientists and experts in military medicine, defense and security are expected to attend the event.

The seminar aims to evaluate achievements and lessons learnt in conducting the military-civilian medical model, thus affirming the significance of the model in ensuring healthcare for troops and people at sea and on islands in the 1991-2021 period.

Through the event, organizers expect to strengthen dissemination of the model-related activities, thus encouraging troops and fishermen to continue working at sea and firmly safeguarding national sovereignty over sea and islands. They also hope that delegates to the seminar will contribute practical measures to raise the effectiveness of activities within the military-civilian medical model at sea and on islands in the new period.

Over the past time, the effective implementation of the model at sea and on islands has contributed to ensuring good health for troops and people, raising the effectiveness of mass mobilization work, and consolidating the whole people’s defense posture and security posture.
