Therefore, the sector needs to continue fostering and developing human resources, especially in the context that the world and the country have to face pandemics, including new diseases that can threaten human life and health, Xuan said.
It is also necessary to research and apply new scientific and technological advances, and build a contingent of highly skilled medical staff to improve the quality of healthcare services, she added.
