Following successful engagements in the APEC LSIF Blood Supply Chain Partnership Training Network (BSC-PTN)’s activities in 2014 and 2015, Viet Nam’s National Institute of Haematology and Blood Transfusion (NIHBT) hosted and led a series of BSC-PTN’s activities from 2016 through 2017.  NIHBT identified Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) as its priority focus for its BSC-PTN activities and work began in November 2016 with a series of training programs held at five regional blood banks.

This report summarises the outcomes of the GMP practices assessment in the five blood centres that participated in the project.
