Experts talk ways to benefit more AO victims

(09:34:50 AM 01/07/2014)
(Tinmoitruong.vn) - A workshop in Hanoi on June 30 debated ways to bring more benefits to Vietnamese Agent Orange (AO) victims as many still have no access to the State support policies tailored to them.

Such policies should be updated regularly, experts suggested, pointing to the requirement for stronger coordination among relevant agencies in the work. 


Over the past time, the country has been active in environmental clean-up in dioxin-contaminated areas, offered medical care and financial aid to AO victims and their relatives, said Deputy Chairman and General Secretary of the Vietnam Association of Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin (VAVA) Nguyen The Luc. 


Vietnam has long confronted urgent and multi-dimensional needs to address the aftermaths of war, including the AO toxic chemical issue suffered by a growing number of victims. 


In face of such situation, the VAVA was established in 2003 and officially registered as the sole representative entity in coordinating and combining all the possible and varied forms of support activities for AO victims. 


It set up a panel to undertake a 2011-2015 study reviewing and making all revisions needed to existing policies for AO victims. 


During fact-finding trips to cities and provinces, its members held 16 workshops to collect feedbacks helpful to their study.
