AUICK Technical Support in Danang, Vietnam
Technical Support Project

Danang, Vietnam (May, 2013)


The AUICK Technical Support Project dispatches nurses and midwives to Danang, Vietnam, supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The Project has established a training system at a newly constructed 600-bed maternal and child health care hospital. 

In February and May, 2013, a delegation of nurses and midwives from Kobe City visited the hospital in Danang to conduct training for health workers, who will periodically visit facilities in Kobe as part of the ongoing project.

Previously, the AUICK Technical Support Project sent teams of firefighters to Surabaya, Indonesia in 2009, to help improve emergency rescue service coordination and response.

2013 AUICK / WHO Kobe Centre Urban HEART Workshop
- Maternal and Child Health Care and Natural Disasters
Kobe, Japan (March, 2013)
AUICK Preliminary Action Plan Dissemination Meeting
AUICK and the WHO World Health Organization (WHO) Centre for Health Development (Kobe) jointly held the 2013 Urban HEART Workshop on the theme of Maternal and Child Health Care and Natural Disasters from 11-15 March.

At the Meeting, senior health department officials of the AUICK Associate Cities (AACs) learned on strategies and programs to improve health conditions for mothers and children, as well as the provision of services in times of natural disaster.

WHO Kobe Centre officials trained participants on the Urban HEART strategy to utilize data for the formulation of plans to address inequities in service provision.

At the culmination of the meeting, participants made Action Plans based on lessens learned at the Workshop, as projects to implement in their cities. These included training care workers and birth attendants, upgrading maternity facilities and providing reproductive health education to youths.

Cities represented at the Workshop were Chittagong (Bangladesh), Weihai (China), Chennai (India), Surabaya (Indonesia), Kuantan (Malaysia), Olongapo (Philippines) and Danang (Vietnam).
