Through the One UN Initiative, the UN is transforming itself to deliver better results for the benefit of the people of Viet Nam through greater unity of purpose, coherence in management and efficiency and effectiveness in operations. In line with the Ha Noi Core Statement on Aid Effectiveness, UN reform in Viet Nam is a three-party undertaking by the Government of Viet Nam, the UN Country Team and the donor community.

Gender Mainstreaming Strategy 2009-2011 - UN Viet nam

Promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment through the process of gender mainstreaming is part of the mandate of all UN agencies. However, despite strong commitments by the UN system and UN agencies at headquarters level, both the November 2008 Delivering as One (DAO) on Gender Retreat, and the 2008 UNCT Viet Nam Gender Audit identify key challenges to achieving equality and women’s empowerment in the context of UN reform.  
The UNCT Gender Mainstreaming Strategy (GM Strategy) was developed by the Gender Programme Coordination Group (Gender PCG) on the request of the UNCT.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December


Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.
