Making the world a healthier place
International Youth Day 2022
We are proud to work with so many committed people in Rwanda who advocate for adolescent sexual and reproductive health, comprehensive sexuality education and youth-friendly services. Intergenerational communication is crucial to empower young people to speak up for their health and rights. Through the Safeguard Young People programme, we work to unlock the potential of all generations, for example, by strengthening parents' ability to provide accurate information about menstrual hygiene to their children.
