The Acceptability of Female Condoms among Migrant Workers in Industrial Zones in Viet Nam

 

This report presents key findings drawn from a qualitative study exploring the perception and utilization of female comdoms among female migrant workers in Viet Nam. Data collection for the study was gathered in six industrial zones covering one city and two provinces, namely Da Nang, Tien Giang and Phu Tho, from June 21 to July 10, 2011. Qualitative methods (indepth interviews with key informants and group-discussions among the target population) were used to collect data and interpret perceptions, attitudes and concerns regarding the use of female comdoms among female migrant workers and their sexual partners.

'Teach the wife when she first arrives'

The report ‘Teach the wife when she first arrives’ -Trajectories and pathways into violent and non-violent masculinities in Hue City and Phu Xuyen district, Viet Nam, is based on life history qualitative research conducted in two sites in Viet Nam: Hue and Phu Xuyen.

It aims to look in-depth at individual men’s life histories to understand what factors push men towards more violent notions of what it means to be a man, and what factors cause men to associate being a man with more gender-equitable, non violent practices. These research findings have particular significance for prevention work on gender based violence in Viet Nam. Ultimately, this research shows that violence is not inevitable and that change is possible.

Study on Gender, Masculinity and Son Preference in Nepal and Vietnam

 

This study was first of its kind in Nepal and Viet Nam that explored men's attitudes on a wide range of issues related to gender equality, son preference, the levels and types of intimate partner violence and knowledge and attitude toward laws and policies related to women's right. The study affirms that high son preference, conservative gender roles and inequitable attitudes persist in both countries. There is a  need for more comprehensive, long-term and male-targeted intervention programs or campaigns at national and local levels taking into account men's specific socio-economic conditions that influence their preferences. While the levels of knowledge of laws and policies relating to gender equality is high, there is clearly a greater need for enforcement coupled with effective communication not only on the laws but also on the norms underlying the practices that are being legislated. Because of the relationship between childhood experiences of inequality, gender equitable attitudes, son preference and intimate partner violence, early childhood interventions around masculinity and men's role in family are also policy recommendations from this study.

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.
