Merck Sharp & Dohme Vietnam and Vietnam Gynaecology and Obstetrics Association (VINAGOFPA) have established the Vietnam Society for Reproductive Medicine.
Assoc Prof Dr Nguyen Viet Tien, President of VINAGOFPA, signed decision No. 29/11/HPS on November 24, 2011, in Hanoi, to establish the society.
On December 17, 2011, Merck Sharp & Dohme Vietnam and the southern office of the association also organized the Vietnam Society for Reproductive Medicine and Reproductive Endocrinology Seminar I in HCMC.
As a joint administrator of the association, Merck Sharp & Dohme Vietnam hopes to contribute to reproductive health care and gynecology and reduce risks and casualties as a result of an abortion.
Merck Sharp & Dohme will also work closely with governments and health organizations to develop public health care, expand the drug delivery system, and develop in-depth research on special medications, especially for developing countries like Vietnam.
