  • - Aquaculture, livestock and crop production face difficulties
    Environmental pollution
    Huge economic losses due to diseases, especially in aquaculture
    Food safety
    - Threats for the environment and coastal ecosystems for years:
    Uncontrolled fishery and aquaculture  diseases, environmental pollution
    Untreated wastes (liquid and solid wastes)
    Decline of natural resources and ecosystem degradation
    Deforestation at the upstream of the rivers
    Uncontrolled use of N-fertilizer and pesticides  increase in eutrophic level in the water bodies; occurrence of toxic and harmful algae; accumulation of organochlorine pesticides in sediment and aquatic animals
    - Urgent needs on improving and sustaining the system of 10,000+ commune health centers to deliver equitable and accessible healthcare for the disadvantaged and vulnerable populations in rural and/or mountainous areas.
    - Persistent inadequacies in the primary care physician population and severely underdeveloped coherent primary care continuing medical education.
    - Missed opportunities for prevention and early treatment lead to the over-loaded of hospitals and specialist care at higher levels.
  • Overall objective:
    Overall aim of Hue University by 2015, and with a vision towards 2020, are to build Hue University into a key regional university, a center for multidiscipline, multilevel and high quality education, meeting national and regional standards in natural sciences, arts and humanity, engineering and technology, medicine, pharmacy and agriculture; a strong research and technology transfer center capable of having major research projects and programs with participation of scientists from many locations and disciplines, a center for international cooperation and exchange to meet national industrialization and modernization requirements.
  • → To create and/or support an enabling institutional environment for research-based education, joint education and research at the south university.
    → To strengthen the institutional capabilities in terms of the university management and governance, curriculum development, and educational quality assurance

    → To transfer research results on aquaculture, environmental science, and health care into the society by new forms of education and training.
    → To improve the infrastructure for development needs of research sites in the context of the programme.
