Dr. Hanh Tran-Hong

I was born in Thanh Hoa province (Vietnam) in 1973. I moved to Hanoi in 1974. I attended primary, secondary and high schools there. Then I studied Ethnology in Hanoi National University and obtained my Bachelor's degree with an excellent result in 1996. Afterward, I successfully defended my Master dissertation in Ethnology there with the excellent result in 2000. At that moment I was interested in community health care among ethnic minorities in Vietnam. From 1997 to 2002, I worked as a researcher in the Institute of Anthropology, Hanoi, Vietnam. I spent 7 weeks from September to November 1999 at Faculty of Social Sciences (Chiang Mai University, Thailand) to participate in the Vietnamese-Thai Collaborative Intensive Training Workshop on Research Methodology lectured by university lecturers from the United State of America, Sweden, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, funded by the Ford Foundation. Then I moved to Dresden (Germany) in 2002 to attend a German intensive training course funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Afterwards, I moved to Institute of Anthropology, Hanoi, Vietnam in October 2002 to do my Ph.D thesis on local knowledge of food security among the Yao ethnic people in Sa Pa district (Lao Cai province, Vietnam), also funded by the DAAD.
