Brief: Establishing the First Human Milk Bank in Viet Nam

April 6, 2017

With financial and technical support from Alive & Thrive and PATH, the Da Nang Department of Health launched Viet Nam’s first human milk bank at the Da Nang Hospital for Women and Children. This milk bank will improve access to donor human breastmilk for 3,000 – 4,000 at-risk infants annually, and will hopefully lead to the development of national human milk bank guidelines and a network of human milk banks throughout the country.
