OVERVIEW
Traditional Vietnamese Medicine (TVM) plays an important role in Vietnam’s national healthcare policy. Statistics from the country’s Ministry of Health reveal that 30% of the population utilizes TVM. It is mainly sought for primary health, geriatric diseases and chronic illnesses and as an alternative to biomedicine. The government is carrying out various initiatives to modernize and promote TVM, including building and upgrading hospitals that practise traditional medicine.

The concept for a 380-bed Traditional Medicine Hospital was prepared for presentation to the Military Institute of Traditional Medicine. Mediconsult together with local partners were invited to submit a conceptual design proposal for the hospital.
