NDO/VNA – Soldiers of Vietnam’s Level-2 Field Hospital Rotation 4 have recently provided training and updated knowledge on the epidemiological situation, diagnosis, treatment of prevention of monkeypox for Level-1 field hospitals in the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), according to the Vietnam Department of Peacekeeping Operations.

In the context of the disease developing complicatedly in many countries around the world, including African ones where it was first detected, the training aimed at equipping medical workers with basic knowledge and necessary epidemiological skills, thus helping the health system in the mission able to take concerted measures in response to the disease in case it spreads to the area where the mission is stationed.

Soldiers of the Vietnamese hospital also joined Civil-Military Co-operation (CIMIC) activities.

Visiting the Unity State’s Education Ministry, the soldiers showed their hope to contribute to the study of children here.

They then visited and presented gifts to students of Charles Kuot Primary School in the state. Students were also taught to play several folk games of Vietnam.
