Why do some women experience more violence by husbands than others?

In 2013, the UNFPA, in partnership with GSO and MOLISA, commissioned a secondary analysis of data from the National Study on Domestic Violence, which was conducted by GSO in 2010. This report should be seen as a supplement, or 'Part 2', of the report "Keeping silent is dying" - Results from the National Study on Domestic Violence against Women in Viet Nam. The study intends to shed some more light on the reasons why in the same cultural context, some women experience more violence by their husbands than do others. This understanding should help the government design more effective interventions and develop necessary policies to address VAW in a more comprehensive manner.

State of the World Population Report: The Power of 1.8 Billion: Adolescents, Youth and the Transform

The report shows that developing countries with large youth populations could see their economies soar, provided they invest heavily in young people’s education and health and protect their rights. The potential economic gains would be realized through a “demographic dividend,” which can occur when a country’s working age population is larger than the population that is dependent and younger. The report suggests that in order to maximize the dividend, countries must ensure their young working-age populations are equipped to seize opportunities for jobs and other income-earning possibilities.

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.

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.
