News Desk: The UK is to support Viet Nam in its effort to combat COVID-19 with £500,000 of essential medical equipment.
This commitment follows the donation by the UK government to Viet Nam of 415,050 doses of the University of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine in August 2021.
The UK is also one of the largest donors to COVAX, providing over £548 million to supply vaccines globally, including to Viet Nam.
As a strategic partner, the UK stands with Viet Nam in our common effort to combat COVID-19. This is part of the UK’s wider commitment to support Viet Nam and our partners in ASEAN as we work together to build back better from the pandemic.
The only way to recover from this pandemic is through cooperation. Thanks to our partnership with UNICEF, the medical equipment funded by the UK will be procured and delivered to help those in need, save lives and accelerate Viet Nam’s economic recovery.
