Vietnam strongly supports Global Partnership’s TB fight

QĐND – Wednesday, May 05, 2010, 21:32 (GMT+7)

The Vietnamese Government will continue to strongly support anti-tuberculosis activities undertaken in Vietnam by the Global Stop Tuberculosis Partnership, a Government leader affirmed.

The Global Stop Tuberculosis Partnership’s Coordinating Board convened its 18th meeting in Hanoi on May 4, drawing the attendance of its Chair Prof. Rifat Atun, Vietnamese Health Minister Nguyen Quoc Trieu, a broad spectrum of representatives of local and international organisations concerned.

Addressing the event, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan also called on the Global Stop Tuberculosis Partnership and the international community to provide more support for the fight against TB in Vietnam , which, as according to the World Health Organisation, ranks 12th among 20 countries heavily burdened by TB in the world.

He hailed the inception of the Global Stop Tuberculosis Partnership and its enthusiastic activities as meeting an urgent need of preventing the dangerous disease, helping the people enjoy a fairness in gaining access to healthcare services, and promoting the share of trans-national responsibilities in controlling the disease worldwide.

Nhan highlighted that the anti-TB activities the Global Stop Tuberculosis Partnership have deployed are highly oriented to the community, regardless of social status and eco-political mechanisms of the participants, in the fight.

These activities have created a driving force to promote the adoption of new initiatives, mechanisms and technologies to combat TB, and also spurred sustainable socio-economic development to achieve millennium development goals.

About 150,000 new TB cases are detected annually in Vietnam . Of the figure, 12,000 cases are found to have infected with both TB and HIV virus and nearly 70 percent are tested positive for AFB, mainly in females and in southern provinces.

An epidemiological study showed that the TB prevalence in Vietnam continues to rise, especially among the youngsters, partly due to inadequate monitoring work.

Besides, the increasing number of multi-drug resistant TB imposes a great challenge to the country’s fight against tuberculosis.

Stock market rebounds strongly

In Uncategorized on August 11, 2008 at 3:08 pm

The stock market marked the new week with green colour dominating electronic boards in both floors.

The Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange’s benchmark VN-Index rose 2.37 percent or 10.25 points to end at 454.8.

The floor witnessed over 15.7 million shares worth almost 635 billion VND changing hands. As many as 151 stocks enjoyed gains, including 140 hitting the ceiling level, while only seven stocks suffered losses.

All blue-chips such as the SSI of the Saigon Securities Company, STB of the Sacombank and FPT of the Financing and Promoting of Technology Company saw their prices skyrocket and purchase orders outnumbered sales.

The Hastc-Index of the Hanoi bourse won 1.7 points or 1.26 percent to 137.02 points. Trading volume was almost 3.2 million shares for turnovers of 113.5 billion VND.

A fresh fall in crude oil prices and sharp reduction in gold prices have prompted investors to turn their interest to the stock market which is on the trend of rally.

The market was also supported by the cut in lending interest rates by commercial banks and the Government’s toughness in inflation control.

These measures included the State Bank of Vietnam ’s permission given to commercial banks to buy back their shares and a suspension of new banks licensing.

All these are good news for the stock market, said experts.–
