HA NOI, 12 August 2013 – Today marks the International Youth Day, and this year the focus is on the issue of youth migration. Young people, aged 10-29 years old, make up approximately 38 per cent of the total population of Viet Nam, recording the highest proportion of young people ever in the country's history. This provides a unique and one-off economic opportunity for Viet Nam’s development, but also creates enormous challenges for the country. If Viet Nam wants to reap the full benefits of this demographic window of opportunity, investing in the education and health, including the sexual and reproductive health, of adolescents and young people is paramount.

VTC10-NetViet reporter had an interview with Mr. Arthur Erken, UNFPA representative in Viet Nam on the occasion of International Youth Day. Mr. Erken shares his opinion about the situation of young migrants in accessing to sexual and reproductive health information and services in Viet Nam.

HA NOI, 11 July 2013 – In the past decade, although Viet Nam has made impressive progress on reducing maternal mortality and increasing access to reproductive health and family planning services, more than a third of young Vietnamese still lack access to the contraception they need. As a result, the rates of unwanted pregnancies and unsafe abortions are still high amongst young girls, especially those who are unmarried.

VTC10-NetViet reporter had a talk with Mr. Arthur Erken, UNFPA representative in Viet Nam on the occasion of World Population Day. This year's theme was adolescent pregnancy. Mr. Erken shares his opinion about the situation in Viet Nam as well as in other countries.

In Viet Nam, UNFPA in collaboration with other UN agencies puts every effort into breaking the silence and ensuring that the voices of women are heard. One strategy is to engage men - policy makers, parents and young boys in discourse about the dynamics and consequences of violence. Click here to watch this video

Population and development are closely related. Integrating population variables into development planning will help utilize population strengths to achieve sustainable development. Such development must also respond to population changes to meet the needs of current and future population groups, promote social equity and alleviate poverty through sustainable economic growth in the context of sustainable development.

Nam became a lower middle-income country in 2010 and has continued to maintain impressive growth rates over the past few years. Therefore Viet Nam is expected to achieve all MDGs by 2015. However there remain significant gaps in the level of MDGs achieved between rural and urban areas, geographical regions and population groups. This requires further efforts to ensure all policy-makers fully understand the importance of integrating population factors in development planning and making it an integral part of policy-making and planning at national and local levels.

Viet Nam has entered a demographic bonus period, with the highest proportion of young people ever recorded in the country. Today, young people aged 14 to 25 account for one-third of Viet Nam's total population. However, one-third of young people still face challenges in accessing sexual and reproductive health information and services. The unmet need for contraceptives among unmarried young people is around 35%, while this rate is only 10% for married people.

This video, developed by the UNFPA in Viet Nam in July 2013 is a call from Vietnamese youth for more greater efforts in ensuring comprehensive sexuality education and access to quality sexual and reproductive health information and services.
