The main role of this organisation is to oversee the health care of all the communities in the province. MCNV has built a strong relationship with the Provincial Health Department in Savannakhet since 2008. This relationship started with a collaboration to improve sexual and reproductive health services in the districts of Sepon and Nong. That was very successful. Within the TEA program, the Provincial Health Department signed an MoU with MCNV and plays a key role in coordinating work with other departments such as the Lao Women’s Union, Agriculture Deartment and other government agencies.
