According to ADB website, the project aims to assist the Government of Viet Nam in achieving universal health coverage (UHC), including access to essential health care services, by increasing the supply of a skilled health workforce. It builds on the achievements of the Health Human Resources Sector Development Program by expanding and improving the quality of undergraduate health professional training programs. Specifically, the project will design and operationalize new campuses in Hanoi Medical University (HMU) and the University of Medicine and Pharmacy at Ho Chi Minh City (UMP). It will feature climate-resilient teaching and ancillary infrastructure, helping the universities to increase undergraduate enrolment and teaching capacity. The project will complement the proposed Local Health Care for Disadvantaged Areas Sector Development Program through innovative models of engaging teaching institutions in community health, including the application of information technology-based learning.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
