I hope that there will be more patients like me can be supported by the Program,” said Mr. C. V. Đ, 56 years old, a patient of Bach Mai hospital.
 
“The strong collaboration of the relevant partners including medical insurance, oncology and pharmacy departments of hospitals and medical centers are critical to the successful roll out of the Program.
