MD. Nguyen Dac Quynh Anh, a lecturer from the Faculty of Medicine at the DTU College of Medicine and
Pharmacy, receives the first prize for oral presentation
The conference comprised 12 sessions covering the following fields:
-    Epidemiology of Communicable and Non-communicable diseases
-    Health improvement
-    Mental Health
-    Environmental and Occupational Health
-    Nutrition and Food Safety
-    Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment
-    Health Service and Healthcare Management
-    Reproductive Health  
The presentations focused on groundbreaking research and innovative solutions to address urgent public health problems in the new era. MD. Nguyen Dac Quynh Anh’s presentation on the topic: “Lung Cancer Treatment Costs from the Payer’s Perspective at the Danang Oncology Hospital” was awarded first prize for the Oral Presentation. The treatment of lung cancer is expensive in both developed and developing countries. To analyze the cost of lung cancer treatment and identify related factors, MD. Nguyen Dac Quynh Anh’s research team conducted a descriptive cross-sectional study, utilizing both quantitative and qualitative methods on 154 lung cancer patients at the Danang Oncology Hospital, from May to December 2022. 
Factors such as lung cancer progression, treatment methods, and treatment duration influence the costs. Direct non-medical costs also constitute a significant proportion of the overall cost. Consequently, it is imperative to provide support to disadvantaged patients and foster trust in doctors’ treatment methods.
Dr. Nguyen Dac Quynh An, said: “Health and Education are fields that demand lifelong study and research. Currently, I feel truly fortunate to work in both fields at DTU and am grateful for the support and opportunities provided by the DTU Board of Directors and the DTU Faculty of Medicine for conducting research and participating in conferences to enhance my knowledge. The International Conference on Public Health in the greater Mekong sub-region countries facilitated connections among researchers, universities, and research institutes in the area.”
