Deputy Health Minister Nguyen Truong Son has submitted his resignation and Government agencies are looking into the matter.
On the evening of June 6, according to a source from the Ministry of Health, Deputy Minister Nguyen Truong Son submitted his resignation.
Mr. Son, 58, from Ho Chi Minh City, is highly regarded for his professional and managerial capabilities, making great contributions to the health sector, especially efforts to develop high technology in organ transplantation.
Nearly four years ago, he was appointed by the Prime Minister to hold the position of Deputy Health Minister while he was the Director of Cho Ray Hospital. He is also a rare case of the medical profession for three terms as Director of Cho Ray Hospital.
When Covid-19 broke out, Mr. Son was present to fight the epidemic at many front lines such as Da Nang (mid-2020); Bac Giang, Bac Ninh (early 2021); Ho Chi Minh City (end of 2021)…
Regarding the violations at the Ministry of Health for the 2016-2021 term, in early November 2021, Deputy Minister Nguyen Truong Son was reprimanded for the first time by the Central Inspection Committee for his involvement in violations at the Drug Administration of Vietnam. Nearly two months later, he was administratively reprimanded by the Prime Minister.
In May 2022, Mr. Son was disciplined by the Central Inspection Commission for the second time, with a warning level, related to the incident at Viet A Company.
The Ministry of Health currently has four deputy ministers: Ms. Nguyen Thi Lien Huong, Mr. Tran Van Thuan, Nguyen Truong Son, and Do Xuan Tuyen.
Yesterday afternoon, Mr. Nguyen Thanh Long, Minister of Health was expelled from the Party by the Central Committee. Previously, many officials of the Ministry of Health and its affiliated units were disciplined for violations related to the Viet A case and the Drug Administration of Vietnam.
