[RE-ADVERTISED] UNDP Vietnam is seeking for 01 National Consultant working as Programme Research and Administrative Support Officer for the “Strengthening Protection for Persons with Disabilities in the COVID-19 Recovery Context” Programme (Re: T200605)
COVID-19 was first reported in Viet Nam at the end of January 2020. Since then, the Government has taken decisive steps to curb the disease, including prevention, detection, tracing, isolation of confirmed and potential cases. On 1 April, the Prime Minister officially declared COVID-19 a national epidemic and issued strict nationwide social distancing rules. On 23 April, Viet Nam moved to a new phase of COVID-fight –continued implementation of measures to prevent and control the epidemic, while restarting and stimulating the economy.
The impact of the crisis on the economy and businesses has been significant. The Government’s Statistics Office reports that GDP growth in Q1 of 2020 is 3.82%,which has been the lowest since 2010. It is estimated that COVID-19 has affected nearly 5 million workers and almost 85% of enterprises in Viet Nam as of mid-April. In early April 2020, the Government announced, among other measures, a support package of US$2.6billion for those affected by COVID-19.
According to the 2016 National Survey on Persons with Disabilities, 7% of the population in Viet Nam has a disability. The number of persons with disabilities was estimated to be around 6.2 million people and has increased due to the ageing population and traffic accidents. Persons with disabilities face several challenges during COVID-19. Many suffer from underlying health conditions and are at increased risk of serious consequences from COVID-19. They are disproportionately represented among older populations who are more vulnerable to infection. They may be prevented from accessing necessary medical care and supplies. They have lower levels of financial or job security. They may face difficulties in receiving essential information in accessible formats. They may also have difficulties in adopting recommended public health strategies, such as social distancing and washing hands.
