 Gender and remittances from internal migrants

Gender and remittances from internal migrants
PropertyValue
Name:Gender and remittances from internal migrants
Description:

This research explores gender differences in remittance-sending behaviour, gender differences in income management of migrants, gender differences in access to and utilization of remittance-sending services and channels, and the relationship between gender and the management and utilization of remittances at the home and the community of origin. The research findings are based on 600 male and female migrants surveyed and 42 IDIs and 12 FGDs conducted between April and May 2010 in three wards of central Hanoi, Viet Nam. This study will contribute to bridging the current research gap and provides a much needed data set from which gender sensitive policies and programmes can be developed. The research aims to strengthen the potential of internal remittances to maximize the development of internal migrants, their families and their communities and to contribute to policy and programmes that support gender-sensitive socio-economic development in rural Viet Nam.

This research is part of the Joint Programme on Gender Equality (JPGE), jointly implemented by the Government of Viet Nam and the United Nations in Viet Nam. The programme and this research were generously financed by the Spanish-funded Millennium Development Goals Achievement Fund (MDG-F). The General Statistics Office (GSO), with technical assistance from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Viet Nam, took the lead in the implementation of this research.

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.
