HANOi, October 27, 2015-- It is exciting to join you this morning to announce the shared commitment to a new phase of our cooperation on support for persons with disabilities. You know well that this year Vietnam and the United States celebrate the 20th anniversary of the normalization of our diplomatic relations. During that period our governments have partnered for significant achievements in areas of economic growth and trade, health, education and war legacies. But our cooperation for persons with disabilities goes further back and represents perhaps the broadest set of aspirations shared by our peoples. In important ways it represents a key element of our past and future relations. For many it also represents an important part of our cooperation on war legacies.

Vietnam was one of the first countries in the world hit by highly pathogenic avian influenza (AI) H5N1 outbreaks in 2003 and also reported the world’s first AI human case in that same year. Since then, Vietnam has experienced more than 3,000 animal outbreaks across the country and has had 124 human cases, half of which have been fatalities. While Vietnam is widely considered to be a model in terms of its response to AI, globally it currently ranks third behind Indonesia and Egypt in terms of human cases and deaths
