The Joint UN Programme In Kon Tum 2007-2011: Addressing Disparities in the Ethnic Minority and Mountainous Regions
UN agencies in Viet Nam have long been actively involved in the development of Kon Tum, one of the poorest provinces of Viet Nam, and this joint programme provides a more coordinated and strategic response. The main objective of joint programme is to increase the capacity of sub-national authorities in the province to better plan, budget and manage public resources.
The programme also works to demonstrate approaches and strategies to tackle the issue of disparity in the province with regard to access to quality social and protection services. With a focus on a specific geographic location in the province, the programme targets maternal and reproductive health, child health and nutrition, basic education, water and sanitation and protection services for marginalized and vulnerable groups (ethnic minority, children, youths and women). Support under this programme is directly provided to the province where the Provincial People’s Committee (PPC) provides overall leadership to the programme.
