Prospects for public health research cooperation with the School of Health Sciences, Massey University, New Zealand in 2020-2021

From 15-29 February 2020, Director of the Institute of Community Health Research (ICHR), Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy visited and worked with the School of Health Sciences, Massey University at 2 Campuses in Wellington and Palmerston North, New Zealand, with funding from the International Visitor Research Fund (IVRF). Co-Director of ICHR, Prof. Michael Dunne from QUT University, Australia also participated in this mission.

Meetings and direct exchanges between ICHR and leaders of Massey University, and lecturers specialized in environmental health, nutrition, health literacy, maternal and child health and the elderly’s health… have promised many prospects for research cooperation between the two units in several areas of mutual interest.

During this time, A/Prof. Vo Van Thang spent a lot of time exchanging knowledge and experiences with Dr. Linda Murray, representative of the Massey University research group, to develop a comparative research collaboration proposal on maternal mental health and development of babies after birth. This research collaboration between the School of Health Sciences, Massey University and Monash University, Australia and the ICHR, Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy was sponsored by Catalyst Grant, New Zealand for 2 years (2020-2021).
