The new UNICEF Representative in Viet Nam, Mr Youssouf Abdel-Jelil, today, presented his credentials to Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Ha Kim Ngoc. "UNICEF is known in every Vietnamese family as a champion of children's rights," stated Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Ha Kim Ngoc. "Protecting and promoting the rights of the child is a top priority for Viet Nam. While much progress has been made over the years, more needs to be done to close the gap between the ratio of poor children and to ensure they have better access to health care, education and clean water," he noted.
The average Vietnamese woman now gives birth to just two children in her lifetime and the reduction in maternal and child mortality over recent years has been immense. Those two examples demonstrate that impressive progress has been made in achieving population goals in Viet Nam.
