March 21, 2024

A hospital in Ho Chi Minh City claimed to have treated more than 500 cases of adolescent pregnancy in 2023. The program, which launched in March 2023, has addressed 51 cases since its inception, as reported on Wednesday by Tran Thi Kim Thanh, head of Child Care Protection and Gender Equality at the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Labor, War Invalids, and Social Affairs. It collaborates with investigative agencies and the Ho Chi Minh City Forensic Examination Center to compile documentation for further investigation and case handling. The Ho Chi Minh City Youth Vocational Education and Social Work Center in Go Vap District provides temporary shelter, ensuring the victims have a safe living environment, access to food, and support during childbirth. Le Van Thinh, director of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Labor, War Invalids, and Social Affairs, admitted that during the one-year trial of the program, despite initial successes, challenges such as insufficient expertise and unprofessional case management persist.
