SIMPLY’s free health check and cardiovascular consultancy program in Phu Tho
Within one week of program implementation, the atmosphere in Phu Tho was somewhat more bustling, fellow-villagers were eager to go to the commune medical station to be freely health checked and consulted.
During days in this April, following “Free health check and consultancy” program back to the ancestral land, we have witnessed hundreds of people taking part in SIMPLY - Free health check and cardiovascular consultancy in 25 sites of Phu Tho province, such as: Viet Tri city, Phu Tho county town and Lam Thao, Thanh Ba, Tam Nong, Phu Ninh, Doan Hung suburban districts.
Participating in the program, people are checked for electrocardiogram and blood pressure as well as consulted on cardiovascular diseases and remedy methods when having diseases’ symptoms by nurses and doctors. Doctors also consulted them on daily diet and help them understand benefits of some food products good for heart.

Only on 21/4, at Ninh Dan medical station- Thanh Ba Suburban District, there were almost 300 people registering for cardiovascular check, aged from 30-55. In the medical practice, Ms. Nguyễn Thị Thúy, aged 30, the youngest among female participants in the program said that 2 years ago, she was fainted in the garden, until now, after being health checked, she was informed that she had the possibility of having a mitral valve disease. Doctor advised her to go to higher medical service for prompt treatment. Thúy also said: “I’ve felt dazzled and dizzy for a long time and thought that it must have been disease of the peasant. Unexpectedly…. finding out the disease now, I will try my best to be cured, if it is more serious, I don’t know how to handle”.
In the same situation as Thúy, Ms. Đỗ Thị Thanh, aged 48, has farmed for 20 years told that health check result showed that she had symptoms of cardiovascular diseases. She also said: “Now I will rest more, eat more vegetables, vegetable oil and do exercises regularly as per advices of the doctors because I don’t want to be a burden for my children afterwards”.
