  3. US donates PPE to Vietnam

The Vietnamese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the National Institute for Hygiene and Epidemiology (Ministry of Health) has been presented with personal protection equipment (PPE) courtesy of the US in a bid to combat the spread of Avian Flu.

Donated by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the PPE provided is estimated to be worth $50,000 and forms part of USAID's effort to pre-position PPE units in five south-east Asian countries.

PPE, which includes goggles, face masks, gloves, coveralls and cleansing wipes, is to be provided for use by healthcare workers, laboratory technicians, AI outbreak responders and others involved preventing the spread of Avian Flu in Vietnam.

The Ministry of Health said that the donation of PPE will allow it to develop its surveillance of Avian Flu and provide greater protection for personnel involved in any attempt to contain it.
