A lot of “fruits” from a project for workers

Summary workshop on "For mother and baby-For Vietnamese stature" has become so vibrant at the last minute when many female workers, who mostly lack basic knowledge about reproductive health care, open out themselves as well as their concerns about reproductive health care in the continuous labor and shiftwork situation.

The conference was cooperatively organized by Trade Union of Industrial and Export Processing Zone of Hanoi (Hanoi Trade Union of I&EPZ) and For Vietnamese Stature Foundation on December 14th in Hanoi. It was not only an opportunity for delegates to summarize the "fruit" of the project that has been achieved in the first stage but also a forum for female workers in industrial zones in Hanoi to contribute many ideas and help them have a positive spiritual life.

Mr. Dinh Quoc Toan, Chairman of Trade Union of Hanoi Industrial Zones and Export Processing Zone affirmed that the project "For mother and baby-For Vietnamese stature" has helped improve knowledge and skills for workers in reproductive age in the industrial zones on proper nutritional practices; reproductive-sexual and mental health care. These are the "inputs" that are important for the giving birth and nurturing of healthy babies, both physically and mentally, thus contributing to improved physical fitness, stature and intelligence for Vietnamese people.

In addition to organizing a training session on information to supply skills for more than 40 healthcare professionals and local trade unions in Thang Long Industrial Zone, the project "For Mother and Baby-For Vietnamese Stature" successfully organized 16 communication sessions for workers in this Industrial zone and Quang Minh Industrial zone (Me Linh, Hanoi). More than 2,000 workers at factories belonging to three Japanese companies, SEI, JUJIKIN and TOTO, were equipped with information on proper nutritional practices, sexual and reproductive health and mental health for female workers in those industrial zones.

Many female workers were also happy to share that their husbands understood them better, show their care and sharing with their wives after participating in the "Improving mental health for pregnant and nursing mothers." The delicate issues such as periodic health checkups for cancer prevention were discussed at the communication session which helped female workers who were busy with work at the factory have more knowledge to build a better spiritual life.
