Bayer Vietnam and Hung Vuong Hospital in HCMC have entered a strategic partnership to accelerate women's healthcare in Vietnam through a wide range of scientific programs and community initiatives.

Bayer Vietnam Company and Hung Vuong Hospital have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on a strategic partnership to jointly develop and implement a wide range of programs aimed at ensuring better access to quality obstetrics and gynecological (ob-gyn) care for women through all phases of life.

The collaboration scope focuses on two main objectives: improving knowledge and clinical experiences for healthcare professionals in the field of obstetrics and gynecology and enhancing public awareness of gynecological diseases and reproductive care for women.

This collaboration has emphasized the shared commitments and mission of empowering women to make informed choices about their health and well-being, thereby contributing efficiently to the sustainable development of the community.

Ass. Prof. Hoang Thi Diem Tuyet, director of Hung Vuong Hospital, said: "As a leading obstetrics and gynecology hospital in Ho Chi Minh City and the southern provinces, Hung Vuong Hospital works tirelessly to strengthen health workforce capacity, ensuring consistently high quality of women healthcare services and better patient outcomes."

"Through the strategic partnership with Bayer Vietnam, we can further leverage our strengths and expertise to address the diverse health-related needs of women and the community in general."

Specifically, there will be a series of scientific symposiums, educational programs, and medical bulletins co-developed for healthcare professionals from Hung Vuong Hospital and its satellite hospitals nationwide to keep them well updated with the latest research and innovations on women's contraceptive options, effective treatment for endometriosis, heavy menstrual bleeding as well as natal nutritional needs.

Additionally, both parties are committed to investing efforts in sustaining their existing community initiatives including the Contraception Counseling Program for women of reproductive age; Health Counseling Program for women living with endometriosis; and the Reproductive Healthcare Call Center to continuously provide accurate and reliable scientific information for Vietnamese women, empowering them to make their own informed health decisions.

Ingo Brandenburg, general director of Bayer Vietnam, said: "At Bayer, we have the fundamental belief that empowering girls and women by providing them access to quality healthcare is cornerstone of sustainable development."

"We greatly appreciate the cooperation with Hung Vuong Hospital and trust that this will enable both of us to extend our reach and impact in transforming women's health for a better and healthier world, contributing to a future of "health for all, hunger for none."
