Despite the many significant achievements in cancer treatment, incidence of the disease continues to increase globally. The first Vietnam multidisciplinary oncology conference will contribute to improving the quality of cancer treatment and prevention.



Organised by the Central Military Hospital 108, Salt Cancer Initiative, the Vietnam Young Physicians Association, Viettel Group, Forbes Vietnam, and the University of Southern California, the conference has attracted academics, scientists, and healthcare professionals from leading cancer hospitals in the US and Vietnam.

The event will create an opportunity for them to share knowledge, exchange experience, and collaborate for improving the quality of cancer treatment and prevention.

The Vietnam Oncology Patient Forum will be held in HCM City on September 8 to connect cancer patients and caregivers with physicians and supporting organisations in the fight against the disease.

It will be attended by over 400 cancer patients in the city and raise public awareness about cancer in Vietnam, according to the organisers.

Each year in Vietnam more than 120,000 new cancer cases are detected with more than 75,000 dying.

Despite the many significant achievements in cancer treatment, for various reasons the disease continues to increase globally and in Việt Nam, indicating that additional efforts and new initiatives are needed.
