As a part of the HEALTH Expertise France project, the team of epidemiology researchers held a 5-day scientific production workshop in Savannaket.

 

The aim of Dr. Vanphanom Sychareun, Dr. Kongmany Chaleunvong, Dr. Viengnakhone Vongxay and Dr. Souksamone Thongmixay was to write scientific articles on the results of epidemiological surveys carried out in the districts of Thapanthong and Phine in southern Laos. The results cover a range of issues, including mothers' access to family planning, antenatal care and childbirth in rural areas of Savannakhet province, and knowledge of and access to rapid diagnostic tests for HIV, tuberculosis and malaria among pregnant women living in rural areas in this region.
