Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey 2011

The Viet Nam Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) was carried out in 2010-2011 by the General Statistics Office of Viet Nam. Financial and technical support was provided by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and financial support was provided by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

MICS is an international household survey programme developed by UNICEF. The Viet Nam MICS was conducted as part of the fourth global round of MICS surveys (MICS 4). MICS provides up-to-date information on the situation of children and women and measures key indicators that allow countries to monitor progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other internationally agreed upon commitments. Additional information on the global MICS project may be obtained from www.childinfo.org.

Summary of the Review of Logistics and Distribution of AI related IEC Materials Viet Nam has been one of the hardest hit countries by Avian Influenza. The first outbreak in both the avian and human populations was reported at the end of 2003 and the government of Viet Nam officially declared the presence of avian influenza on 8 January 2004. Since then, the virus has spread through bird populations in almost every city and province in Viet Nam. The country’s fatality rate for AI infection is one of the highest in the region.

Public awareness and behavior change communication have been a vital and cross-cutting component of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI or AI) control since the outbreaks began in 2003. Public awareness and BCC has also been identified as a crucial component in the Government’s policy framework to combat HPAI. It particularly formed a key and successful component of work in Phase I of the Joint Programme which led to the continuation of the component in the second phase of 2006-2010. Two major communication campaigns were launched by the Joint Programme during the pre-TET periods of 2005-2006 and 2006-2007, which included TV spots, radio/public address system messages, street posters, pamphlets, supply kits and newspaper inserts.  This report presents findings and recommendations of the review of the existing logistics and distribution network of AI IEC materials for further improvement of the distribution system in both non-outbreak and outbreak situations.

Fast Facts and Figures about Handwashing
  • Over 1.5 million children under five die each year as a result of diarrhoea.  It is the second most common cause of child deaths worldwide.
  • Handwashing with soap at critical times - including before eating or preparing food and after using the toilet - can reduce diarrhoea rates by more than 40 per cent.  
  • Handwashing with soap can reduce the incidence of acute respiratory infections (ARI’s) by around 23 per cent.

Child Poverty in East Asia and the Pacific: Deprivations and Disparities - A Study of Seven Countrie

Poverty reduction begins with children. A child’s experience of poverty is very different from that of an adult. Income is but one dimension among many that should be assessed when analyzing child poverty and disparity. Non-monetary deprivation in dimensions such as shelter, food, water, sanitation, education, health, and information is equally, if not more, revealing. Since deprivation along these dimensions can have significant negative consequences on a child’s development and future, an examination of multidimensional child poverty and associated disparities is clearly warranted.

As part of UNICEF’s Global Study on Child Poverty and Disparities, several countries in East Asia and the Pacific have undertaken national child poverty and disparity studies. In this paper, results from seven of those countries, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Mongolia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vanuatu and Viet Nam, are reviewed. The objective is to identify trends and lessons, generate strategies for UNICEF EAPRO, and to contribute toward a richer conceptualization of the situation of children in the region.

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.
