April 17, 2024

HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism has issued a directive urging government bodies, organisations and local authorities to observe the National Action Month for Prevention and Control of Domestic Violence in 2024, themed 'End Violence, Cultivate Love,' running through June. This activity aims to raise awareness and responsibility of agencies, organisations and individuals regarding the prevention and control of domestic violence, and to build equal, progressive, and happy Vietnamese families. Key messages and slogans for National Action Month emphasise collective responsibility in curbing domestic violence, viewing it as crucial for sustainable development. Encouraging individuals, families and communities to play active roles in prevention and intervention, the campaign stresses that any hindrance to reporting domestic violence is unlawful. Further messages underscore the imperative to identify, prevent and address all forms of domestic violence, recognising its detrimental impact on family dynamics and societal well-being, including contributing to divorce rates, coercive reproductive practices, elder neglect, and hindering children's educational and holistic development.
