How does the program operate?
The program utilizes its close grassroots communications and frequent field visits to local and provincial hospitals to study and evaluate equipment and training needs. Assessments are evaluated to determine the priorities in the most vulnerable communities. Official mortality rates of each province are considered when assessing priority provinces, as well as donors’ particular interests and requests to provide assistance in a specific geographical area.
The APLS course is designed to deliver intensive education/training over a short period of time. A variety of training methods including lectures, workshops, skills stations and clinical scenarios are utilized. Our national partners are the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Vietnam National Children’s Hospital; all programs and activities are approved at the highest levels and consistent with the laws of Vietnam and MOH’s plans and goals.
