This year’s program is its fourth edition with the aim of honoring young physicians who have made great contributions to the cause of developing youth work and protecting people’s health in the city.
On the occasion, the Vietnam Youth Federation's Central Committee also offered certificates of merit to 19 individuals for their dedication during the period of 2018 - 2020.
Dang Thuy Tram Awards, launched by the Hanoi Youth Federation in 2011, have been given to 40 medical workers. This year, the Youth Union - Youth Federation - Young Doctors' Association of Hanoi presented the noble award to ten physicians in recognition of their contributions to Ha Noi’s public healthcare and medical sector.
The award is named after the martyr and Heroine of the People’s Armed Forces, Dr. Dang Thuy Tram, who worked as a medical doctor in the battles in Quang Ngai province during the most violent time of the anti-US war.
