During the two-day event, medical personnel of the two hospitals shared knowledge and experience in COVID-19 prevention and control, and treatment for several common diseases.
The Indian delegation to the event was directed by Brigadier General Jai Singh Bainsla, Commander of the UN peacekeeping mission for Sector South, and Colonel Rishi Raj, Director of India’s Level-2 Field Hospital.
Meanwhile, the Vietnamese delegation was headed by Colonel Nguyen Ba Hung, Commander of the Vietnamese peacekeeping force in South Sudan, and Lieutenant Colonel Trinh My Hoa, Director of Vietnam’s Level-2 Field Hospital No. 3.
During the training course, the two sides exchanged experience in responding to the pandemic as well as treating COVID-19 patients. In addition, Indian doctors shared their understanding about the SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant, which has emerged in India and spread rapidly across the globe.
The military medical staff also exchanged experience in COVID-19 vaccination, as Vietnam’s Level-2 Field Hospital No. 3 will be in charge of vaccinating 500 UN staff members in Bentiu.
At the event, members of Vietnam’s Aero-medical Evacuation Team (AMET) shared that they have successfully built and effectively operated a process for transporting severe COVID-19 patients by helicopter based on a process of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Addressing the event, Colonel Nguyen Ba Hung spoke highly of the programme, saying the success of the event will contribute to enhancing cooperation between the two hospitals and improving the staff’s professionalism and their treatment skills.
Hung expressed his hope that the two sides will continue to hold similar activities in the time to come.
Meanwhile, Lieutenant Colonel Trinh My Hoa said that the training course paves the way for the two sides to expand their cooperation activities and joint projects in the future.
