(VOV) - Vietnam has produced international standard vaccines, making significant progress towards the eradication of polio and measles. 

This information was released at a March 6 press conference held by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

JICA Chief Representative in Vietnam, Mori Mutsuya revealed that Japan has provided Vietnam with a polio vaccine production line through technical cooperation and non-refundable aid over the years.

It has also helped Vietnam set up measles vaccine production facilities and carry out technological transfer for manufacturing these types of vaccines.

The technological transfer project to produce measles-rubella vaccines has been implemented in order to control rubella and reduce the number of children born with defects due to congenital rubella.
