9th Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights (APCRSHR) in
Hanoi, Vietnam, Nov 27-30, 2017
The conference will be held from 27-30 November 2017 at the Quang Ninh Exhibition of Planning and Expo Center (QNEPEC) , in the Ha Long City, Quang Ninh province, Vietnam.
On behalf of the Government of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, I would like to extend my warmest welcome to all distinguished delegates from throughout the Asia-Pacific region attending the 9th Asian Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights (APCRSHR).
I am well aware that APCRSHR is the biggest scientific forum on Reproductive and Sexual Health in the Asia-Pacific region. After eight conferences held in the Philippines (two times), Thailand, Malaysia, India, China, Indonesia, and Myanmar and in 2007, it is planned to be hosted in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The Conference’s objectives are to assess the progress, and to take stock of the Asia-Pacific countries’ many good practices, lessons, as well as the constraints encountered in meeting our commitments to the Program of Action of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development, millennium goals and sustainable development goals related to reproductive, sexual health and rights, especially among youth groups and specific populations.
Vietnam is among 179 countries adopting the Program of Action of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, which emphasized improvement in living standards, gender equity assurance, economic growth and sustainable development.
Over the last few years, the Vietnamese Communist Party and Government have always shown great concern by enacting many policies and legal documents as well as effectively allocating resources for family planning, and reproductive & sexual health, and have achieved many important outcomes. The indexes in this field are relatively good compared to other countries with the same level of per capita income.
Nonetheless, akin to other nations, Vietnam is now facing many new challenges which hinder the implementation of the objectives of 2011-2020 Population & Health Strategies and 2015-2030 Sustainable Development goals.
