In Viet Nam, A&T, along with PATH, supported the Da Nang Department of Health to establish the country’s first human milk bank at the Da Nang Hospital for Women and Children in February 2017. This milk bank helps to improve the access to donor human breastmilk for 3,000 – 4,000 at-risk infants in Da Nang annually. Based on the initial achievements of Da Nang human milk bank, A&T signed a memorandum of understanding with Tu Du Hospital to establish the second human milk bank in Ho Chi Minh city (HCMC), which will generate the needed evidence for the development of a national guideline on human milk banking services in the country.

The purpose of this Request for Quotations (RFQ) is to solicit quotes for the procurement of pasteurizers and related products as listed below. The equipment will be delivered to Tu Du Hospital at the address of No. 284 Cong Quynh Street, Pham Ngu Lao Ward, District 01, HCMC as soon as possible but no later than April 30, 2018.
