Nancy Lins, senior international cancer control officer and American Cancer Society liaison to the International Union Against Cancer, visited Vietnam and met with Vietnamese government and civil society representatives to discuss future cancer control plans. Led by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the trip included visits to the National Cancer Hospital, Hanoi Cancer Hospital, the Department of Oncology of Bach Mai General Hospital, and the World Health Organization (WHO) Country Office. Lins also visited the Ministry of Health, where she met with the Minister of Health and other high-ranking officials to discuss public health, chronic and non-communicable diseases, health education, cancer control education and training, and disease prevention. A key topic was radiation protection, which included a meeting with the director of the Atomic Energy Commission, a WHO country representative, leading officials at the National Cancer Institute and the national clinical laboratory, leading oncologists in main hospitals, leading cancer NGOs and civil society organizations, and officials from university faculties of medicine. As a result of these meetings, a draft for cancer control support for Vietnam is under development.
