He told the university and the VDPO to pay special attention to equipping the hospital staff with skills in performing tasks at a UN mission. He also asked for close coordination with the hospital No. 1 staff to exchange experience regarding preparations, deployment, and task implementation.

VDPO Director Col. Hoang Kim Phung said members of the hospital No. 2 are excellent servicemen and servicewomen chosen from the Military Medical University, the General Department of Logistics, the Military Region 2, the VDPO and the Department of Military Medicine.

He noted the pre-deployment training course is part of preparations for the hospital No. 2 to replace the first one performing UN peacekeeping tasks in South Sudan. It is also meant to continue affirming Vietnam’s role, responsibility and efforts in joining UN peacekeeping operations for the sake of global peace and stability.

Vietnam dispatched the level-2 field hospital No. 1 to the UN mission in South Sudan in October 2018.
