QĐND – Monday, August 02, 2010, 23:26 (GMT+7)

The Committee for Ethnic Minorities has presented an insignia for the cause of ethnic minority group development to Jason William John Eligh, former acting chief representative of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).


The insignia presentation has been made in recognition of Jason Eligh’s great contributions to preventing and controlling drug abuse and the HIV epidemic among Vietnam’s ethnic people.


Jason Eligh and his colleagues joined domestic and international organisations and local authorities to prevent drug use and the spread of HIV in ethnic-inhabited regions through disseminating information and educating local people to raise their awareness on the issue. They have also built a typical community-based rehabilitation model at the Muong Hum commune, Bat Xat district of the northern mountainous province of Lao Cai.


The Committee also hailed UNODC’s important role and contributions to Vietnam’s drug prevention and control. Thanks to the UN body’s financial and technical assistance, the Vietnamese Government’s anti-drug programme has accessed international information and experiences and successfully organised effective and synchronous activities.


Addressing the presentation ceremony in Hanoi on August 2, Jason Eligh said he was happy to receive the honourable award and thanked the Vietnamese partners for their assistance.


He said he wished to make further contributions to the development of Vietnam’s ethnic people.
