One Budget

As part of the One Plan, a single budget provides a clear sense of total resources required to implement the One Plan, while the One Plan Fund provides a streamlined way of providing un-earmarked support for the UN's programmatic work and reduces the problem of different UN agencies competing for the same donor funds.The overall budget for the One Plan 2012-2016 is USD480,232,770. At the time of signing, this included USD107,549,500 in regular resources of UN agencies, USD65,954,700 in extra-budgetary funds from all sources and USD306,728,570 to be secured, USD135,387,301 is to be raised through the One Plan, with the remaining USD171,341,269 coming from other resources.

The One Plan Fund II

The One Plan Fund (OPF) is a strategic and important element of the reform process, and a proven mechanism to increase coherence and focus in UN planning and programming. The OPF provides a streamlined way for donors to provide un-earmarked or soft earmarked support for the UN's programmatic work. This reduces competition among UN agencies for the same funding and enables the UN to make strategic decisions on allocation of funds to where the need and potential development impact is greatest. Under One Plan 2012-2016, following an in-depth review of funding proposals by an independent panel, four successful OPF allocation rounds were conducted.It is only possible for the UN to undertake joint short-and long-term strategic prioritization if sufficient and predictable multi-year funding is available. However, the funding environment in Viet Nam is changing rapidly, due to lower levels of ODA globally and the country's graduation to lower middle-income country status. To respond to these changing conditions, the UN is contemplating innovative ways for resource mobilization. The Government of Viet Nam and the UN may also consider a reprioritization of One Plan 2012- 2016 to make sure expected results are aligned with availability of funds

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.
