On November 8th 2018, 700 tenth-grade students from Hanoi - Amsterdam High School For the Gifted attended a "Reproductive Health Class" with the participation of professionals from the Hanoi Obstetric Hospital. Through this extra-curricular activity, Amsers have gained more knowledge on how to maintain reproductive health, ensuring their own safety as well as others' around them.

Joining the session with Amsers was Dr. Vu Thi Thu Hien - an Anesthesiologist from the Hanoi Obstertric Hospital. As someone who has been working for a long time with C-section, pelvic surgery, endoscopic surgery, etc. and especially adolescent abortions, she understood the suffering and long-lasting consequences that result from a lack of understanding of reproductive health, which leads to unwanted pregnancies.
