HCM CITY — The HCM City Oncology Hospital will join with the Vietnam Medical Association and Roche Vietnam in implementing a project on improving access to advanced therapies for high-risk breast cancer patients during  二0 二0- 二 五 as part of a Memorandum of Understanding signed on March  一 八.

Under the framework of the MoU, the hospital will focus on strengthening patient and co妹妹unity awareness about breast cancer and improving doctor’s breast cancer diagnosis and treatment ability at the hospital. Priority will be given to increasing access to treatment with advanced therapies for high-risk breast cancer patients yearly in the hospital and support optimising breast cancer diagnosis and treatment database built by the Vietnam Social Insurance and National Cancer Institute.

HCM City Oncology hospital director Phạm Xuân Dũng said that there was an increase in the rate of cures in cancer in general and breast cancer in particular day by day as result of the application of advances in medicine along with early detection and patient’s access to advanced therapies.

“However, Dũng said, breast cancer is still a health issue of social concern and requires the cooperation of the entire health sector and related agencies to develop overall intervention solutions that both raise awareness of the co妹妹unity and strengthen diagnosis and treatment capacity to minimise the financial burden for the patient and society.”

“Today's signing ceremony sets an important milestone in the project on improving access to advanced therapies for high-risk breast cancer patients in Việt Nam during  二0 二0- 二 五. We hope that the project will promote the spread of positive messages in the co妹妹unity, sparking hope for patients, especially those at high risk. Roche Vietnam hopes that the project will be an effective and enduring support for Vietnamese doctors and health systems in diagnosing, treating and minimising the burden that breast cancer brings,” said Girish Mulye, Chief Representative of Roche Vietnam.
