An agreement to this effect was signed between the Vietnam Red Cross (VRC) and the Italian Red Cross in Hanoi on July 6.
The project will target women at the age of 15-49 in the district, which has the highest rate of those suffering from reproductive health related diseases in Long An, according to VRC.
The project will provide consultancy as well as early diagnosis and treatment for women in the community, in order to reduce the rate of catching reproductive health related diseases among beneficiaries.
During the 2010-2011 period, the Italian Red Cross provided 100,000 EURO for southern provinces of Tien Giang and Binh Phuoc to implement a project on capacity building and healthcare for mothers and children.
The project benefited 2,100 mothers and 1,800 children in the project sites.
