By Tuan Minh 14:19, 2013/12/03
Representatives from various government agencies, non-governmental organizations and the United Nations gathered at the national scientific conference on HIV/AIDS prevention and control in Hanoi on December 2.
Delegates praised the advancements made by Vietnamese and international scientists over recent years, and the event offered an excellent opportunity for scientists to share experiences in conducting scientific research on HIV/AIDS in the global fight against the disease.

In his speech, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc highlighted the active contribution made by relevant ministries, agencies, social organisations and mass media in the campaign against HIV/AIDs in Vietnam.

He confirmed that a system of legal documents have now been issued to effectively implement the national strategy on HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control until 2020 with a vision for 2030.

Localities are also encouraged to increase human resources aimed at preventing HIV/AIDs,over the next few years when international aid is likely to reduce and the government budget will remain limited.

In addition, it is crucial society as a whole reduces discrimination of HIV/AIDS infected people and improves access to support services aiming to prevent and treat the HIV/AIDS infection.

Since the first HIV case was detected in Vietnam in 1990, Vietnam has achieved remarkable results in HIV/AIDS prevention activities.

Vietnam has managed to contain the rate of HIV/AIDS at below 0.3% in the community.
