The provincial general hospital, the general hospital of the Nghia Lo area, and the medical centre of Van Yen district have benefited from the project, funded by the German Development Bank (KfW).  

The project, approved in 2015, comprised three phases, with the first focusing on establishing decentralised health care systems at Viet Duc Friendship Hospital and local hospitals, and preparing infrastructure for the installation of telemedicine systems and medical equipment.

During the second phase, Vietnamese doctors, technicians and engineers receive training on how to use and maintain the telemedicine systems at the above-said hospitals.

The operation of the telemedicine systems at the hospitals will be the focus of the third phase.

With total funding of 8 million EUR (9.66 million USD), the project will contribute to improving the quality of health care in Yen Bai, from IT application to training, diagnosis and online consultation, thus enhancing the access to medical services of local residents, particularly the poor and those in remove and far-flung areas, and easing overloads in central and provincial hospitals.
