Young people in Viet Nam are the most mobile group, as many leave home for further studies, while others migrate seasonally or permanently for better job opportunities. Sexual and reproductive health norms and behavior are changing rapidly among young people in Viet Nam. One-third of young people still face barriers when trying to access reproductive health information or services they require and deserve.

Agreed Principles, Objectives and Instruments to achieve One United Nations in Viet Nam

United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan presented his first reform plan to member states in July 1997. The plan, entitled ‘Renewing the United Nations’, set out an agenda to strengthen the United Nations to make it a more effective instrument for pursuing its global mandate and for supporting its Member States and the world’s people. A series of other initiatives have followed, including more recently a comprehensive reform strategy elaborated in the Secretary General’s report In Larger Freedom prepared for the 60th Session of the General Assembly in 2005.

Harmonisation of UNDG Agencies: Towards One United Nations in Viet Nam

In September 2005, Viet Nam’s UN Resident Coordinator and UNICEF Representative jointly presented a paper on UN reform in Viet Nam as a contribution to the global discussion on this vital topic. The paper made a case for bold and rapid steps towards One United Nations at country level, and enjoys the support of the UN Country Team, government and many donors in country. This interest has led to requests from a number of development partners to elaborate on how the ideas of that paper might be realised in practice.

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.
