Remarks by Helen Clark, Chair of the United Nations Development Group, at the ‘High Level Tripartite Conference on Delivering as One: Lessons from Country-led Evaluation and Way Forward’

Print Email
Speaking as the Chair of the United Nations Development Group in Ha Noi today at a conference evaluating the Delivering as One reform initiative, Helen Clark said that the United Nations Development Group is fully committed to responding to calls from Member States for a more coherent, effective, and efficient UN development system. She stressed that such a system would maximize the impact of the UN in supporting developing countries to achieve the MDGs

"For some years now, across the UN's funds, programmes, and specialized agencies, numerous measures have been implemented to improve co-ordination," said Helen Clark. "These measures are most advanced in the Delivering as One countries and those which have voluntary adopted this approach. It is important to me as Chair of the UN Development Group that we step up our co-ordination globally."

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.


New Year Greetings from the United Nations Resident Coordinator a.i. in Viet Nam

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.
