Wars don't end when the guns fall silent. Thirty-five years after the end of the Vietnam War the legacy of Agent Orange/dioxin contaminated soils has placed a heavy burden of disability on people in Vietnam as well as on American veterans, and continues to be a challenge. Recent progress however has created a window of opportunity for the U.S. to intensify its effort in a shared commitment to reduce the public health impact in Vietnam. Drawing on extensive experience in today's Vietnam the speakers will show how this is a humanitarian concern we can do something about.
