Partnership with private sector

Over 1.2 million EUR for reproductive health care of working women

The southern province of Dong Nai has received a project on providing reproductive health care for at least 160,000 women workers in Dong Nai and the neighbouring province of Binh Duong until 2015.

The European Union will fund 80 percent of the project’s total budget of more than 1.2 million EUR, which was signed on April 15 between Marie Stopes International Organisation in Vietnam, the Community Reproductive Health Centre and the health department of Dong Nai.

The project will help improve the capacity of 40 public and private health care establishments in order to create a network providing quality services relating to reproductive health and birth-control, at acceptable expenses for workers and the local population in the two provinces.

After having been tested in Dong Nai and Binh Duong province, the model will be applied at other businesses through the nation.

Educational activities will also be carried out to increase workers’ awareness of reproductive health and birth-control through peer education networks at factories.

There will be a hotline service to help worker understand the importance and the availability of the reproductive health care services in the province
