He emphasised that, during the process of construction and growth, the Civil Medicine Division has made important contributions, especially in research and production of vaccines for disease prevention and control, drugs and equipment.

He affirmed that the "Hero of the People's Armed Forces" title is a testament to the recognition of the Party and State for particularly outstanding achievements made by generations of officers , doctors, and soldiers of the Civil Medicine Division during the resistance war against US imperialists.

The State leader also requested localities to pay special attention to officers, doctors and soldiers of the division.
