Furthermore, Mr. Tho also said that it is necessary to ensure a full provision of the essential health care services for people, especially at health care routes at grassroots level, while enhancing implementing, supplementing and completing policies and legal regulations to minimize the risk factors for health and creating a favorable environment to help improve people’s health.

According to Mr. Nguyen Nam Hung, Director of the Department of Health, each resident has to be proactive in taking care of their health, such as ensuring appropriate nutrition, doing more physical exercise (walking 10.000 treads per day, doing exercise during breaks), saying ‘no’ to smoking and alcohol, having vaccination, as well as having regular medical check-ups for early detection and treatment, thereby improving living quality and minimizing sickness and death.
