“MAPPING DENGUE VULNERABILITY TO CLIMATE USING GEOSPATIAL TECHNOLOGY FOR
VIETNAM AND PHILIPPINES”
Hanoi, 15 September 2017
On behalf of the APN project team, it is my pleasure to announce the first workshop for dissemination the outcome of the project titled “Utilizing geospatial technology to assess health vulnerability to climate change for rural population in Vietnam and Philippines” (Code: CAF2015-RR16-NMY-Pham) will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam on 15 September, 2017. The venue of the workshop will take place at:
– Build. A6 (VNSC Building), 18 Hoang Quoc Viet, Hanoi.
