VietNamNet Bridge – It is estimated that 60 tons of gold has been sold, which is considered the result of a new policy on taking full advantage of the gold resource that the central bank attempts to pursue. For a long time, people and analysts have been guessing wildly about the policies the State Bank of Vietnam would set up in order to mobilize the huge capital of 400 tons of gold from the public, after banks stop accepting gold deposits, slated for November 25.

Giang was refused surgery to treat her ovarian cyst last year after she told doctors she had HIV. “First, doctors said I need to undergo a surgery or a rupture would be very dangerous,” the woman from Hai Phong, who admits she used to be an injection drug user, said. “Before the surgery, I told doctors to take measures to protect themselves from HIV.

According to the Vietnam Administration of HIV/AIDS Control, the government has pledged to achieve three goals in 2015: no new HIV infections, no deaths due to AIDS and no discrimination against people living with HIV. The country also aims to reach the “triple 90” target in 2020, which refers to 90 of all people living with HIV knowing about their … [Read more...] about In Vietnam, discrimination still stalks people with HIV
