PROVIDING CARE IN VIETNAM
Registration for VnHOPE Summer Medical Mission 2024 will be open on November 1-2023
After a successful mission in June 2023, VnHOPE's next Summer Medical Mission is scheduled for June 23 – July 7, 2024.
Please note, we will continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and any travel restrictions leading up to the start of the Medical Mission 2024. Should our circumstances change before the start date, volunteers will be eligible for a full refund of their deposit and application fee. Click here for our COVID-19 policy.
Because of the constantly changing nature of COVID-19, please also be aware that unforeseen circumstances (such as a positive COVID test) during the medical mission may incur additional expenses, which may be covered by travel insurance, or a longer stay in Vietnam based on the country's quarantine rules.
We offer primary, pediatric, gynecologic, dental and optometric care to the rural underserved population of Vietnam. We prescribe medications, perform pap smears, dental procedures and hand out reading and prescription glasses to our patients.
We set up our clinics in Vietnam where patients can reach us for services. Our patients are underserved and access to health care for them is a challenge. We coordinate follow up care with the local healthcare centers and can refer specialty care to tertiary hospitals.
As part of our medical mission, we give out free medications, walkers, canes, wheelchairs and glasses. We also provide thousands of gift packages including cooking oils, condensed milk, toothpaste, toothbrushes and stuffed toys.
We partner with the local Vietnamese physicians and medical teams to exchange healthcare practices and expertise. Our students give presentations and shadow the healthcare providers to gain experience in our clinics.
