Background of the Project

Since the implementation of the Doi Moi policy in 1986, various reforms in health sector have been introduced and greatly contributed to the improvement of health indicators in Vietnam. However, in order to enhance better medical services, development of human resources is an urgent and rational matter. Therefore, the Ministry of Health is considering a reform and revision of regulations and policies on human resource of medical services through training activities in order to improve quality of health staff at different levels.

On the other hand, Japanese Government has been cooperating to support Vietnam's national hospitals, especially with Bach Mai Hospital (Northern Region), Hue Central Hospital (Central Region), and Cho Ray Hospital (Southern Region), in order to strengthening its function as well as hospital staff by improving their training / teaching capacity. These activities have made considerable contribution to the improvement in capacity of heath staff in three hospitals in particular, and for health staff in each region in general. However, those activities were still limited within the region, not yet systematized or standardized to meet the demand for improving the capacity of health staff nationwide.

Aiming to support the Ministry of Health on human resources in medical service system and utilize the past cooperation's achievements link to the national policy, this project has been formulated and launched
