Terms of Reference for a Tripartite National Task Force to Establish One United Nations in Viet Nam

The United Nations (UN) has an important global development mandate and a vital role to play in Viet Nam. The UN actively seeks to strengthen national capacity as a prerequisite to national ownership, to provide objective monitoring and evaluation of government activities and improve access to international experience, expertise and best practice. For the UN to act on this mandate it must achieve greater focus, technical proficiency and efficiency in its operations.

The 'One UN Initiative' in Viet Nam: November 2011 Update

The ‘One UN Initiative’ brings together the expertise, experience and capacities of the UN agencies in Viet Nam to provide more coordinated and effective assistance. Through greater harmonization of its work and alignment with Viet Nam’s development priorities, the UN is achieving more coherence, better results and greater impact – for the benefit of all people in Viet Nam.

As Viet Nam continues to experience rapid social, economic and demographic change, the UN in Viet Nam aims to support the country to ensure balanced, equitable and sustainable development so that no-one is left behind. As Viet Nam changes, the UN must also evolve with it. The UN needs to provide relevant support to the Government and people of Viet Nam to address the challenges ahead and continue to progress towards higher levels of human development. To that effect, the UN is continuing to shift to a greater focus on upstream policy advice to the Government, is speaking with One Voice on key policy issues, and is strengthening its focus on the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

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.
