Highlights

Read this publication to learn more about the success of the UNICEF supported Ubuzima Bwiza, Ishema Ranjye (My Health, My Pride) project, an innovative programme that reached young Rwandans with adolescent-centered peer support and HIV and sexual and reproductive health (SRH).

Each year the UNICEF Executive Director allocates 7 per cent of core resources to innovative programmes for children and adolescents with the greatest
