Australian experts shared experience in first aid by air of the UN peacekeeping mission in South Sudan and instructed trainees to practise a flight to improve their capacity in the field.

Meanwhile, US specialists will provide guidance on trauma care.

After completing the course from October 30-November 5, the trainees will take an exam to get the International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) certificate and prepare to join the UN peacekeeping mission. 

Việt Nam’s first field hospital team is set to join the United Nations peacekeeping mission in South Sudan in 2018.
