Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc (centre) and other representatives joined a walk on June 6 this year to launch a national campaign against plastic waste.

Tien said that plastic waste impacts ecology, the environment, people’s health and the country’s sustainable development.

In the health sector alone, plastic waste was created from different activities such as daily work of medical workers and patients, wrappings, production and trade.

Tien confirmed that the plastic items could be replaced with other safe and environment-friendly ones if all workers in the health sector and people worked together.
