Speaking at the conference, Assoc. Prof. Dong Van He, MD, PhD, new President of the Vietnam Association of Neurosurgery, shared: Vietnam is a developing country and the medical disparity between big cities and remote regions. If colleagues in large hospitals have many conditions for development and international friendship, colleagues in mountainous and rural areas are quite difficult. To help colleagues develop together, doctors in large hospitals should develop more international relations to access technology relative to developed countries. For colleagues in a remote area need, support to attend conferences is necessary. In the coming time, the Vietnam Association of Neurosurgery will focus on training to jointly develop Vietnam’s neurosurgery, aiming to cure more patients, to reduce mortalities and morbidities and help people to return to a normal life..
