On June 20 & 21, 2023, VinaCapital Foundation’s (VCF) Survive to Thrive program collaborated with the Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee of Quang Ngai Province to implement an advanced neonatal resuscitation training course for 37 healthcare workers, doctors, and nurses at the Tra Bong District Medical Center in Quang Ngai province.

With participation of medical staff from the Tra Bong District Medical Center and other medical stations from 15 communes within Tra Bong district, the training session featured 7 different topics, including neonatal resuscitation, intubation techniques, airway management, chest compressions, umbilical vein catheterization, life support teamwork, detection of congenital heart defect, and safe patient transfer. Two doctors from the Department of Neonatal Emergency – Intensive Care and Department of Pediatric Emergency – Resuscitation and Poison Control of the Da Nang Hospital for Women and Children served as instructors of the training course. The training course, sponsored by the Consulate General of Germany in Ho Chi Minh City, marks the second time that the Tra Bong Medical Center has received support from the Survive to Thrive program.

With financial support from the Consulate General of Germany, the Survive to Thrive program has reached its second destination in Quang Ngai, Tra Bong, one of the country’s 74 poorest districts. In the final quarter of 2022, the program and the Consulate General of Germany implemented a similar project at Son Tay Medical Center, with a total fund of 16,250 EUR. This time, the Consulate General of Germany provided direct support of 16,100 EUR for 10 neonatal care equipment pieces and an emergency training course for 37 healthcare workers in Tra Bong.

The training course from the Survive to Thrive program provides valuable opportunities for local healthcare workers in Tra Bong District Medical Center to enhance their professional competency and develop essential skills in emergency neonatal resuscitation and neonatal care, contributing to the goal of reducing infant mortality rates. The content of the training session will also assist Tra Bong Medical Center in improving its treatment capacity for over 17,330 infants in the area and neighboring regions.
