Training midwives

For several years, GSK in Vietnam and Tu Du Hospital have provided scholarships for more than 700 ethnic minority young girls to be trained in community healthcare with the aim of reducing complications and deaths during childbirth in remote parts of the country.

The trained midwifes return to their villages to provide healthcare services to vulnerable mothers and newborn babies. This initiative contributes significantly to the strengthening of the healthcare system and raising the standard of patient treatment in Vietnam.

In recognition of its efforts, GSK received a special award from Ho Chi Minh City’s People Committee for their contribution to the community.
