Title: National Consultant – Team Member to facilitate a youth group to conduct a research on gender-based violence and health implications ((STIs, HIV/AIDS and unwanted pregnancies) in youth

In 2016, under the support by UN Women's Fund for Gender Equality, a youth-led study on dating violence was carried out with significant findings that provided important information to the limited understanding about this form of violence among young people, the media and local authorities. Moreover, issues around the imbalance of power among dating couples are alarming especially in sexual activities, without knowledge about which can pose various risks. As young people become more sexually active, while the understanding of gender issues may remain limited, there are physical, health risks that may become detrimental to young couples. Findings coming out from this study will feed directly into the "Women and Health" area of concern in BPFA +25; this study is also an opportunity for the youth to look closely into concurrent issues among themselves and their peers, and share their concerns as well as provide suggestions to tackle these gender issues.

In this context, UN Women Viet Nam is looking for a national consultant who will work as a team leader provide guidance to a youth-led study. In this position, the national consultant will support, build capacity and provide inputs to the research process and reporting as part of an independent study on dating violence, HIV contractility and unwanted pregnancies.

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.
