Tuesday 10/09/2019 10:28

VGP – The Ministry of Health organized a meeting on amending and supplementing some articles of the Law on HIV/AIDS prevention and control. 

Participants in the event included leaders from ministries, agencies, representatives of international organizations in charge of HIV/AIDS prevention and control, social organizations and community-based organizations, representatives of some HIV/AIDS prevention and control centers and local disease control centers. 

Speaking at the event, head of Viet Nam Administration for HIV/AIDS Control, under the Ministry of Health Nguyen Hoang Long said that the Law on HIV/AIDS prevention and control, which has taken effect since 2006, has created a crucial legal framework for effectively launching HIV/AIDS prevention and control activities in Viet Nam. 

A number of activities have been carried out such as intervention activities, distribution of clean syringes and Methadone treatment. However, after 12 year-implementation, the law needs more adjustments to be suitable with other legal documents. 

At the event, delegates listened to a report on the evaluation of the 12-year implementation of the Law on HIV/AIDS prevention and control and gave comments on draft Law on HIV/AIDS prevention and control.
