Healthcare project for Central Highlands gains momentum


Measures to accelerate the second phase of a plan on public healthcare in the Central Highlands region were the focus of a conference held in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak on March 18.
The plan calls for the construction of 36 medical facilities and the provision of more medical equipment for local clinics within this year. The provinces will also invest in upgrading quality management systems at 10 key hospitals to meet the 83-category criteria for quality standards issued by the health ministry.
