New international recruiting drive for Vietnam

Global Medic Force, the global leader in clinical skills rapid transfer to emerging nations, is gearing up for a major international recruitment drive for healthcare workers to deploy nationally throughout Vietnam. With over 1,000 volunteer healthcare workers from 15 Western nations, Global Medic Force has been operational in Vietnam for almost 10 years. Additionally Global Medic Force has unparallel credibility in terms of the real tangible results of its primary healthcare clinical mentoring programs in Vietnam, with the Founder and Chair of Global Medic Force, Dr Marie Charles receiving the National Medial of Honor from the President of Vietnam at the opening of the National Assembly in Hanoi in 2007, in recognition of the number of lives that Global Medic Force has saved in the country. Global Medic Force has implemented national healthcare programs in Vietnam on behalf of organizations such as The Vietnamese Ministry of Health, the World Health Organization, HEDO (Vietnam), and Harvard University. USAID audits of Global Medic Force clinic sites in Vietnam have declared them to be “National Centers of Excellence”. Indeed in a typical instance, patient numbers may go from zero, as in the case of one government clinic in Bin Than District in Ho Chi Minh City, to 1,600 patients, after Global Medic Force clinical mentors deployed to the site and mentored it for 8 months.

Your donations will help ensure that this new recruitment drive is successful in deploying healthcare workers throughout Vietnam.
