He emphasized MDDSC’s long-standing commitment to driving positive change in Vietnam’s healthcare landscape through engagement with stakeholders across the public and private sectors. Mr. Minko also acknowledged the successful prior collaborations between MDDSC and IMDA throughout the pandemic, including medical donations and regulatory enhancements.

 

The proposed three-year cooperation plan focuses on several key initiatives:

  1. Drafting the Law on Medical Devices
  2. Development of Clinical Research Guidelines
  3. Establishment of Medical Device Nomenclature
  4. Post-Market Quality Management System
