For infants unable to receive breastmilk from their mothers, human milk banks (HMBs) serve a vital role. Since 2017, with assistance from A&T and support from Irish Aid, Tu Du Hospital has been working to establish the country’s second HMB. With an annual birth rate of approximately 70,000, Tu Du Hospital is one of the largest maternity hospitals in Viet Nam.
