Newsletter on children's issues for elected officials in Viet Nam

For the first time ever, Viet Nam has produced a Newsletter on children's issues for elected officials. The 12-page color newsletter in Vietnamese is published by Viet Nam National Assembly's Committee on Culture, Education, Youth and Children with the support of UNICEF Viet Nam. Its purpose is to provide information on issues related to children and child rights to serve elected officials from central to local levels in carrying out their legislative and oversight functions. 5,000 copies of the Newsletter are distributed free to all National Assembly's Deputies and members of People’s Councils at local levels.

The Newsletter will be produced two times a year in May and November during the two National Assembly sessions. It is expected that the newsletter will serve as an interesting and innovative way to inform decision-makers about children's issues, and to draw their attention to the priority emerging issues for children by presenting them with data, analysis and opinions in an easily accessible and digestible format.

National Nutrition Strategy for 2011-2012, with a vision toward 2030

In the last decade, socio-economic development combined with the attention, guidance, and investment from the Party and the Government, the efforts of health sector, and the active involvement of other sectors and the society, have contributed to improvement in household food security. Vietnam has shown remarkable achievement in improving health and nutritional status of the population. The majority of the objectives from the National Nutrition Strategy during the period of 2001 - 2010 have been met or exceeded. Nutrition knowledge and practices in the population have been remarkably improved. The prevalence of undernutrition in children under 5 has continuously and rapidly decreased. During the 35th session of the Standing Committee in Nutrition of the United Nations held in Hanoi in March 2008, UNICEF recognised Vietnam as one of the few countries with reduction of child malnutrition close to the Millenium Development Goals (MDG).

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.
