Action Research on Mother Tongue-Based Bilingual Education: Programme Brief

Background
Viet Nam is an ethnically diverse society made up of 54 different ethnic groups, many of which have their own distinct language and live in remote and economically disadvantaged parts of the country. The ethnic minority population totals approximately 11 million; 13 percent of the total population of 85.8 million. The official language of instruction at school is Vietnamese and all children are taught through it. This has created a “language barrier” for many ethnic minority children who have a limited understanding and proficiency in Vietnamese or in some cases do not understand the language at all.

Adoption from Viet Nam: Findings and recommendations of an assessment

The  report  "Adoption  from  Viet Nam: findings and recommendations of an assessment"  is  the  result  of  an independent assessment commissioned by UNICEF  Viet  Nam  and  the  Department  of Adoption of the Ministry of Justice   of  Viet  Nam  in  2009.  This  assessment  was  carried  out  by International  Social  Service  (ISS).  Its  main  objectives  were  to: (1) identify  and  address  problems  in  both  the  domestic  and intercountry adoption  processes,  with a view to assisting Viet Nam in its preparations to  accede  to  the 1993 Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption; and (2) review  the  new draft law on adoption, and propose any amendments that may appear necessary to ensure compliance with international standards and good practice.

Since  the  finalisation  of the report, the National Assembly has passed a new  law  on  adoption (in  June  2010).  This new law addresses many of the concerns  related  to  intercountry  adoptions that were highlighted by the assessment.

An analysis of the situation of children in Dien Bien

The Analysis of the Situation of Children in Dien Bien Province provides a holistic picture of the situation of girls and boys, including an in-depth analysis of remaining challenges that children face. It also examines the possible causes of the situation of children, and analyses the province in the context of the North West region and Viet Nam as a whole. The report aims to contribute towards establishing a stronger knowledge base on children by compiling and analysing information and data on children’s issues that exists but has not yet been consolidated or comprehensively analysed.

The Analysis’ findings confirm the province’s remarkable progress across a broad spectrum of children’s issues, in line with its socio-economic development achievements in recent years. However, there are areas where disparities exist and progress is still needed, such as child malnutrition, health care for ethnic minority children and those who are living in poor households, increasing HIV/AIDS prevalence, poor water supply to mountainous communes and villages, limited access to hygienic sanitation by the rural population, limited education for ethnic minority children at all levels, and limited access to special protection measures by vulnerable groups of children.

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.
