Women and Sustainable Development Goals - Viet Nam towards 2030

On 25 September 2015, the UN Member States adopted a roadmap to sustainable development by 2030.  In the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the accompanying Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), gender equality and women’s empowerment is recognized as a vital means to help accelerate sustainable development through a key stand-alone development goal (SDG5) and through gender mainstreamed in all other goals. This booklet builds on UN Women's analysis on Women and the Sustainable Development Goals and demonstrates the importance of gender equality and its links to sustainable development using global and Viet Nam specific data. It takes a critical look at how women, especially women and girls in Viet Nam are affected by each of the 17 SDGs, as well as how women and girls can — and will — be key to achieving each of these goals.

This booklet is expected to provide a useful introduction to gender equality and SDGs for different stakeholders from policy makers, researchers, development practitioners to youth and other members of society.

Policy Kit Gender Based Violence

 

This kit brings together five issue papers on GBV, based on research undertaken in 2012 and 2013 in Viet Nam.

The issue papers together present new evidence to inform and strengthen policy and programmatic responses to GBV. The intended users of this kit are first and foremost policy makers and programme practitioners, as well as researchers and other stakeholders committed to addressing GBV more broadly.

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.
