31/ 03/ 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is spreading at an alarming rate globally. According to WHO, "a world war against pandemic will not focus on preventing the disease from somewhere else, but on efforts to minimize damage in each country" and WHO is making every effort possible to mobilize the whole world to contribute to the fight against COVID-19 with the utmost care.

In Vietnam, implementing the Government's direction, with the synchronous and drastic engagement of ministries and provinces, and the high sense of responsibility of the people in cooperation with the government in application of disease prevention solutions, the situation in the country so far remains firmly under control.

The International Cooperation Department (MARD), PSAV Secretariat and members/partners have joined hands to support community workers on the frontline in the battle against the coronavirus. Specifically from March 20 - 27, 2020, the Department and PSAV members/partners cooperated with IDH, the Sustainable Initiative and Nestlé Vietnam Ltd. to deliver 2 shipments of essential commodities to 04 isolation centers, including: Border guards of Quang Ninh Province, Military School of Ninh Binh Province, Division 390 of Thanh Hoa Province, Regiment 59 in Xuan Mai Town.
