This examination of the Viet Nam’s first Human Milk Bank (HMB)’s first four years analyzes characteristics in the HMB donors, donation, pasteurization, and recipients, demonstrating efficiency and operational improvements in donor recruitment, milk quality, and patients served. No WHO guidelines have been issued for safe operation of HMB; this article helps to fill a knowledge gap in HMB experience-sharing and lessons learned, especially in LMIC.
