“The Patient Assistance Program is a dedicated and long term program to support patients in their treatment cost, indirectly helping them to adhere to the recommended doses of cancer drug in their treatment to optimize efficacy,” said Professor Nguyen Thi Xuyen, President of Vietnam Medical Association, President of BFF. “The positive impact of the Program on patients over the last one year motivates us to continuously expand the Program nationwide according to the 3-year implementation plan approved by MOH,” said Prof. Nguyen Thi Xuyen.
 
“I enrolled in the Program in October, 2016. My family and I really feel thankful because the Program has supported us during our fight against cancer to prolong life. 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. We are counting on their continued support to help more patients in need benefit from the Program,” Xuyen added.
 
According to Professor Tran Van Thuan, Director of K Hospital (Central Cancer Hospital), Director of BFF, primary liver cancer or HCC accounts for 17.6% of new cases of cancer. It is estimated that there are almost 11,000 new cases of liver cancer every year in Vietnam, and liver cancer is one of Vietnam’s top five common cancers in male.

We hope that together with BFF and other partners, we can provide local patients with better access to the innovative cancer treatment,” said Ms. Lynette Moey, Chief Representative of Bayer SEA Office in Ho Chi Minh City.
