Study on the quality of Family Planning in Viet Nam

Although Viet Nam has made considerable improvements in its family planning service delivery system, there are persistent concerns about the quality of family planning services as well as Viet Nam's contraceptive discontinuation and failure rates. To meet the high demand for reliable evidence on the quality of family planning services, the Ministry of Health and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Viet Nam commissioned the Human Development Research Centre (HDRC) in partnership with the Research and Training Centre for Community Development (RTCCD) to conduct the "Study on the Quality of Family Planning Services in Viet Nam". We hope that this report is useful for policymakers, program managers, health professionals, researchers and donors in designing and implementing policies and programs which effectively respond to the modern contraceptive needs of Vietnamese people, toward achieving the ultimate objectives of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Sustainable Development Goals in Viet Nam.

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.
