NDO-A programme entitled “White Blouse for Needy Patients” honouring ten outstanding young doctors nationwide in 2016, took place in Hanoi on February 17 under the auspices of the Central Committee of Vietnam Youth Unions’ Association and the Vietnam Young Doctors’ Association.

According to Chairman of the Vietnam Young Doctors’ Association Tran Van Thuan, the ten young doctors were praised for their wholehearted dedication and outstanding achievements in scientific research and application for enhancing the people’s healthcare, as well as volunteeractivities for the community.

The event was also held as part of activities to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Xuan Hong (Red Spring) Festival 2017.

Since the first of its kind was held in Hanoi in 2008, the festival received nearly 51,000 blood units from voluntary donors.

In response to the call for post-Tet blood donations and to celebrate ten years of the Red Spring Festival, on February 17, more than 600 health workers from 20 Hanoi-based hospitals will join a parade along streets in the capital to call for blood donations to save lives.
