NDO – The Vietnam Peacekeeping Centre (VPC) under the Ministry of National Defence of Vietnam organised on August 8 an expert exchange to make final planning on level-2 field hospital equipment practical training.

The exchange aims to share expertise and experience between relevant parties in order to make a plan on practical training with level-2 field hospital equipment.

In addition, this exchange will also help Vietnam stand ready to send its forces to UN peacekeeping missions when requested.

The two-day exchange features the participation of experts from military hospitals of the US and the UK, along with officers of the VPC and the Ministry of National Defence of Vietnam.

VPC Director Colonel Hoang Kim Phung thanked the US and UK experts for their assistance and affirmed the importance of sharing experiences to ensure practical training with level-2 field hospital equipment.

At the exchange, participants were briefed about Vietnam’s preparations for the level-2 field hospital, the UK’s deployment of a field hospital at the UN peacekeeping mission in South Sudan, and the goals of the level-two field hospital equipment practical training.

Participants also worked on logistics and administration works for the practical training, simulations to be used during the training, and the operation of the level-2 field hospital at the practical training area.

The field hospital practical training is scheduled to be organised in September of this year.
