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.

Sexual and reproductive health norms and behavior are changing rapidly among young people in Viet Nam. One-third of young people still face barriers when trying to access reproductive health information or services they require and deserve.

The UN in Viet Nam: Making a Difference

The United Nations has a long history as a key partner in Viet Nam’s development, supporting the country’s progress and helping to build the nation. Over the years we have developed strong relationships with the Vietnamese people, overnment, mass organizations and civil society, and have worked hand-in-hand with them to improve the lives of all Vietnamese.

This publication highlights some of the UN’s recent contributions that have played a part in Viet Nam attaining a comparatively high level of human development and becoming a middle-income country. It also illustrates how the role of the UN in Viet Nam is evolving as the country continues to grow and develop. Already challenges are emerging that threaten Viet Nam’s success story: rising inflation, climate change and growing inequalities in society are just some of the big headwinds that Viet Nam faces in its drive to become a modern, industrialized country by 2020.

The 'One UN Initiative' in Viet Nam: November 2011 Update

The ‘One UN Initiative’ brings together the expertise, experience and capacities of the UN agencies in Viet Nam to provide more coordinated and effective assistance. Through greater harmonization of its work and alignment with Viet Nam’s development priorities, the UN is achieving more coherence, better results and greater impact – for the benefit of all people in Viet Nam.

As Viet Nam continues to experience rapid social, economic and demographic change, the UN in Viet Nam aims to support the country to ensure balanced, equitable and sustainable development so that no-one is left behind. As Viet Nam changes, the UN must also evolve with it. The UN needs to provide relevant support to the Government and people of Viet Nam to address the challenges ahead and continue to progress towards higher levels of human development. To that effect, the UN is continuing to shift to a greater focus on upstream policy advice to the Government, is speaking with One Voice on key policy issues, and is strengthening its focus on the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

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.
