The number of new HIV/AIDS infections and HIV/AIDS caused deaths in 2011 has fallen by between 16- 20 percent over the past year.

A grand meeting was held in Hanoi on Nov
ember 30th to respond to World AIDS Day (December 1).
After 18 years of coping with the HIV/AIDS epidemic, 23,000 infections have been reported in Hanoi.
Addressing the meeting, Vice Chairwoman of the Hanoi municipal People’s Committee, Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc called on the administration and people of the capital city to realise activities concerning the prevention and control of HIV/AIDS, drugs, and prostitution are just as important as any other social schemes.
“Hanoi pledges to step up communication on HIV/AIDS prevention and control with the aim of raising public awareness. Measures to abolish discrimination against HIV sufferers and assistance to help them integrate into the community is also top of our agenda,” Ngoc said.
She also highlighted the need to help people have easier access to services for healthcare, treatment, and HIV preventive medicine without discriminating against gender, social status, nationality, and religion.
In response to the National Action Month for HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control, many districts in Hanoi have organized parades, disseminating information about HIV/AIDS and have called on the community to provide more than 1 billion VND in support of HIV/AIDS victims.
Over the year, Hanoi has carried out the action program for HIV/AIDS prevention and control in practical ways such as developing communication models, broadening services for HIV/AIDS patients to consult professionals, voluntary HIV tests and the provision of care and medical treatment for people infected with the virus.
The city now has 42 volunteer groups with more than 1,000 members who regularly support HIV patients.
