Vietnam study on child poverty discussed in the news

March 16, 2010


Coincidentally I just came across an online newspaper article on the website of Thanh Nien news, a Vietnamese newssite (but in English!). It reports on an interview with Geeta Narayan, the chief of the Social Policy section at UNICEF in Hanoi, on the child poverty study in Vietnam. She clearly explains that child poverty in Vietnam is not only about money and that other issues should be taken into account when assessing children’s living conditions. She explains that this more inclusive perspective can support a more integrated and coordinated policy response to child poverty. The full article can be accessed by following this link.
