Guidelines for the Promotion and Implementation of Gender Responsive Budgeting in the Programme 135

Guidelines for the Promotion and Implementation of Gender Responsive Budgeting in the Socio-Economic Development Programme for the Most Disadvantaged Communes in Ethnic Minority and Mountainous Areas (Programme 135) have been developed within the framework of the project entitled Empowerment of Ethnic Minority Women and Girls Through Gender Responsive Budgeting Policies And Programmes, as a project between the Department of Ethnic Minority Affairs of the Committee for Ethnic Minority Affairs (CEMA) and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), with financial support from Irish Aid in Viet Nam.

The Guidelines are aimed at officials working on ethnic minority affairs including the planning and implementation of Programme 135, advisers from other departments and sectors dealing with Programme 135, officials in charge of the advancement of women and gender equality, finance and budget, and gender experts. Programme 135 was selected as it has been the most successful programme in Viet Nam with regards to hunger eradication and poverty reduction for many years. The Programme has brought numerous positive impacts in terms of socio-economic development to the most disadvantaged ethnic minority areas in Viet Nam. The development of these guidelines and piloting the application of gender responsive budgeting in the Viet Nam context is essential to provide valuable lessons learned and experiences to policy makers. This is also the basis for the wider application of gender responsive budgeting in various fields.

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.
