Viet Nam Medical Assistance Program - VNMAP

Viet Nam Medical Assistance Program - VNMAP VNMAP addresses the healthcare issues of the poor in Vietnam while promoting awareness of the healthcare needs of Vietnamese-Americans in the U.S.
VNMAP is a 501(c)(3) group that was started by Nguyen Nguyen, Ph.D and Huy Do, DO in 2007. The first few years were just focused on annual medical mission trips to Vietnam. However, that changed in 2009 when they decided to start reaching out to the local Vietnamese community by conducting health fairs. In 2010, the Screening, Management, and Awareness Solutions for Hepatitis B program (SMASH-B) was established; a project that focused on decreasing the incidence of Hepatitis B in the local community through education, outreach and treatment. In 2012, the PrimCARE project was initiated, a program that focused on increasing primary care access in Vietnam through education (public and healthcare personnel) and construction of a clinic. Another aspect of the program is the leadership training. The program is ran by young professionals and is advised by a board of directors. Students and volunteers have the ability to gain experience by taking on leadership roles during events. Professional students are able to earn credit during a 4-8 week rotation through the IKEP program during their 3rd or 4th years. Application deadline is November 30th, 2013 11:59PM EST.

COVID-19: Local Food System Resources – Montgomery County Food Council

A message from our Co-Founder, Dr. Huy Do.

Dear VNMAP Community,

We are facing an extraordinary time amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As I was reading the news today, the coronavirus has infected more than 3 million people and has killed more than 233,000 people globally (Data retrieved from John Hopkins University & Medicine, 2020 April 30). In the U.S., more than 1 million people have been infected, and more than 62,000 have died from this disease. The virus also has led to many job losses. As the virus puts a toll on everyone’s life in different ways, it creates a devastating impact on the most vulnerable population who may not have health care or food access.

During this dire condition, many non-profits are reaching out to the people in need, including the elderly, children, and homeless population to provide food and medical needs, in addition to other daily necessities. In this message, VNMAP has included several local and national charities and educational resources. Together, we can create a significant health impact to our community. You can help to strengthen the community battle against the virus in several ways:
⧫Consider making a donation during this difficult time to these organizations who are the frontline providers to the most vulnerable populations.
⧫ Refer people in need to local charity organizations
⧫ Spread the message to prevent disease transmission.

Below is a list of local charities and resources that can be shared.
Charity Organizations and COVID-19 resources:
