Story: Helping Vietnamese Youth Protect Themselves from HIV

Pham Xuan Tung talks eagerly and takes notes for his group during a biology lesson on HIV transmission and the virus' replication in blood cells. This new type of highly interactive class is something Tung, a student at Hoang Quoc Viet upper secondary school in Dong Trieu District, Quang Ninh Province, clearly enjoys.

The class is based on a new, integrated reproductive health and HIV prevention curriculum for secondary school students that is being developed and piloted by the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET), with support from the United Nations and Save the Children in Viet Nam. Many students of Tung's age in Quang Ninh Province, Quang Tri Province and Ho Chi Minh City are receiving the new pilot curriculum.

One UN Communications: For a stronger and more coherent UN voice

In response to calls for a stronger and more coherent UN voice on key development challenges in Viet Nam, the One UN Communications Team was established in late 2006. This unique reform initiative brings together a team of communication specialists from UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNAIDS and UNV, working together under a single manager. The team follows a common workplan and sits together in the same office to support the UN-wide advocacy and communication agenda, the internal and external communication needs of the One UN Initiative, and the agency specific communication needs of the five participating organizations.

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.
