He urged the group to well perform the role of "ambassador" of peace and friendship, contributing to raising the prestige and international position of the country and the Vietnam People's Army at the international arena. The hospital was launched in November 2021 with 63 official members, including 12 female soldiers. It was deployed to replace Level-2 Field Hospital No.3 in an UN mission in South Sudan.

The hospital will focus on applying science and technology in medical examination and treatment, thereby learning from experience to work on scientific research, and continue to do well in preventing and control diseases in the harsh environment.

Earlier, Vietnam's Engineering Unit Rotation 1 and Level-2 Field Hospital Rotation 4 departed for the UN peacekeeping missions in Abyei and South Sudan on April 27, 2022./.
