Nearly 200 children from the central province of Quang Nam evaluated the implementation of children’s rights at a forum held on June 30.

The forum created a good chance for local children to express their ideas and aspirations for the right to study, play and join sport-culture-art activities as well as the right to access social information and receive care, respect and protection.

Student Nguyen Ha Dieu Loan said the forum enabled children to better understand the rights of Vietnamese children stipulated in international conventions.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Le Van Thanh said local authorities cleared up a number questions regarding domestic violence, drug use among children and child malnutrition.

Leaders from the provincial People’s Committee and other department and sectors also put forth measures to more effectively implement the fundamental rights of children.

The province has built a number of models to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds or those affected by HIV/AIDS, other diseases and violence.-VNA
