US Organisation commits to deal with dioxin aftermaths

The Ford Foundation has sent US$1.6 million to the Aspen Institute to accelerate the AO/dioxin programme in Vietnam that was launched by the US-Vietnam Dialogue Group.

Activities include long-term commitments of public and private resources for cleaning up AO/dioxin chemicals and helping experts focus projects on the needs of people who were affected by the chemical.

The two organizations have played a key role in creating humanitarian programmes to resolve issues related to AO/dioxin in Vietnam and to raise US lawmakers’ awareness of the issue.
