Creating advantages for HIV/AIDS children to have normal school lives

In Uncategorized on December 24, 2010 at 4:28 am

A seminar on guaranteeing the right for children, affected by the HIV/AIDS virus, to be able to study, was held in Ho Chi Minh City on December 22.

The seminar was hosted by the Ho Chi Minh City HIV/AIDS Prevention Committee and the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).


According to the Legal Aid and Consultancy Center, knowledge of HIV prevention methods and the law on HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control have not been widely known. Which means that children living with AIDS virus believed they are stigmatized and discriminated against, especially at kindergartens and primary schools.


The government should launch and support school policies that assist HIV-affected children, most of whom come from poor families.


Statistics show that Vietnam has more than 5,000 school-aged HIV-positive carriers (0-15 years old) and thousands of HIV-affected children.


In related news, the Thi Nghe Center for Orphans and Disabled Children now has more than 2,300 students, since its establishment in 1975. Most of them have physical, intellectually and communication problems to deal with.

Nam Dinh promotes advantages of developing human resources


QĐND – Monday, May 10, 2010, 22:19 (GMT+7)

Nam Dinh should promote the advantages of human resources to accelerate the application of advanced technologies in production and quickly develop industry, agriculture and high-quality services.


Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung made the statement during a working session with Nam Dinh provincial leaders on May 10.


He praised Nam Dinh province’s socio-economic achievements in recent years, such as the annual economic growth rate of 10 percent, industrial and services proportion of more than 70 percent and the number of poor households at 6 percent. This is a significant result but the province should not be selective, Mr Dung said, as its average per capita income and competitiveness are still low and there are no key products.


PM Dung asked provincial leaders to make a breakthrough in the next years. In the initial period, the province must fulfill set socio-economic development targets for 2010, step up industrial and agricultural production and services, and continue to develop handicraft industry. PM Dung said leaders should encourage all economic sectors to invest in industries of high added value, such as electronics, and accelerate disbursement of investment capital as well as better carry out social welfare policies and administrative reform. They should also make careful preparations for organisation of Party congresses at grassroots level.


Also on the same day, PM Dung made fact-finding tours of a project to build a new road linking Nam Dinh and Phu Ly, and a landslide on the Dao River. The province is asking the Government to provide around VND200 billion to build the 8km-embankment of the Dao River.

Accordingly, there will be an international seaport and international airport on Phu Quoc Island. This will allow the island to open sea and air routes to other nations and cities.


The decision also defines Phu Quoc as a national key tourism site and therefore, tourism investment projects in the island will receive more favorable terms.
