Results Framework for the Reform Process

The following matrix lays out the strategic outcomes of reform and the critical factors on which success depends. It also sets out a timeline for their achievement and the sources that will allow for verification of results achieved. Lastly, it identifies potential risks and basic assumptions that need to be monitored and/or necessitate advocacy from various stakeholders. This matrix is designed as an RBM tool to help the TNTF monitor agreed process outcomes in OP2 and the process leading to the next OP. The matrix will be reviewed by the TNTF every 6 months (starting in December 2008).

The UN in Viet Nam: Speaking with One Policy Voice

To support the Government of Viet Nam in developing effective, evidence-based policies and programmes, UN agencies in Viet Nam are increasingly collaborating on joint research initiatives, policy papers and policy advocacy work, especially through the eight Programme Coordination Groups (PCGs). The PCGs are a unique mechanism to facilitate UN agencies working together with their Government partners on key shared issues such as social and development policies, education, HIV and governance. The PCGs are increasingly undertaking research and developing policy papers on priority themes, or providing inputs for UN policy discussion papers on cross-cutting themes.

Ha Long city, Quang Ninh Province, Viet Nam, October 2011— According to the 2009 Population and Housing Census, young people aged between 10 to 24 years account for nearly 30 percent of the population.

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.
