HSBC helps VCF build capacity in Kon Tum Province

Thanks to HSBC, our Critical Response Program was able to provide an APLS training course to 26 medical professionals in Kon Tum Province this month. 26 doctors were trained and certified in Advanced Pediatric Life Support thanks to your generous donation. Thank you!

The internationally recognized APLS course provides the knowledge and skills necessary for recognition, effective treatment and stabilization of children with life threatening emergencies, using a structured, sequential team approach.

Our Critical Response Program not only provides emergency pediatric life support training, it also provides donations of fully stocked crash carts with all the necessary life-saving equipment to assist children in respiratory or cardiac arrest. 

Since 2009 over 128,000 children have been saved, 838 doctors and 271 nurses have been trained and certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support, and 136 life-saving Crash Carts have been donated.
