He added that with medical ethics, intelligence, talent and great aspirations, the Vietnamese medical force can set new visions and higher goals, strive to put the Vietnamese health sector in the top group of regional countries, and reach out to the world, and contribute to solving global health problems.
The organizing board gave awards to 15 entries in the final round of the sixth “Silent Sacrifice” writing contest on the health sector.
