ICHR welcomed Professor from Cambridge university to visit and work for discussing the collaboration activities in the future.

             From 21-24 February 2017, ICHR welcomed Prof. Manuel P. Eisner to discuss possible collaboration with ICHR. Prof Eisner is the Director of the Violence Research Centre, Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge, England. During this visit, he discussed the feasibility of implementing an international study on childhood violence and family adversity that could be conducted in central Vietnam. The title is: Evidence for Better Lives Study (EBLS).

 

Prof. Manuel Eisner had a meeting with Prof. Michael Dunne, Prof. Vo Van Thang and the ICHR members

               The ‘Evidence for Better Lives Study’ (EBLS) is an innovative global birth-cohort study in eight cities across the world. In each city, the early childhood development of 1500 children within their family and community contexts will be tracked.The study will examine exposure to violence and other adverse experiences while also striving to illuminate how families in different cultures strengthen and support their children. In each site, the study will be accompanied by efforts to introduce and evaluate multi- sectoral prevention packages that can help young children to achieve their full developmental and learning potential. (click here for more information about EBLS)

             

 The study may be carried in six to eight study sites in major cultures of the World

 

               In each site, the research activity will be accompanied by efforts to introduce and evaluate multi-sectoral prevention packages that can help young children to achieve their full developmental and learning potential. In Vietnam, Prof. Eisner and the ICHR team primarily evaluated the interests of some local policy makers and technical capacity of the relevant health services in implementing this study.  

 

Seminar on IBLS project of Prof. Manuel with Hue UMP staff

 

               On the 22nd of February 2017, Associate Professor Nguyen Dung, Vice- director of Thua Thien Hue provincial people’s Committee, along with leaders from the provincial Dept. of education and training, Dept of labor-invalids and social affairs, Dept of health, Dept of foreign affairs, had the meeting with Prof Eisner, A/Prof Vo Van Thang, Prof Michael Dunne and colleagues in the ICHR. Prof. Nguyen Dung considered that prevention and protection of children against violence is a matter of great concern by provincial authorities. In recent years, some studies and intervention activities related to child abuse and child protection also have been undertaken in Thua Thien Hue province.  He expressed his wish that the study will be successfully carried out soon in Thua Thien Hue. This will help to attenuate the school bullying and child abuse in the province and contribute to the social development of Thua Thien Hue province. He committed strong support from local authority for the implementation of the study project if it is carried out in the province.  (website of Thua Thien Hue people's committee).

            ICHR has been conducting a variety of studies related to violence against children. Outcomes of this research are on our website.  Prof. Dunne said that reducing child abuse and other severe adversity in children’s lives is of great concern here in Vietnam and around the world. The United Nations has included targets to reduce violence against women and children in the 2016-2030 Sustainable Development Goals. The EBLS project, and other research like it in Vietnam and elsewhere, could contribute to the evidence base that is needed to achieve these important targets. (some researches of The ICHR)
