Who implements the RHIYA

Similar to the RHI, the EU/UNFPA Reproductive Health Initiative for Youth in Asia (RHIYA) makes use of the comparative advantage of local, national and international civil society organisations in reaching the most vulnerable groups and dealing with a subject area as sensitive as young people's reproductive and sexual health.

More than 30 organisations implement a wide range of complementary projects in the seven target countries. More importantly though, each project is implemented with the full participation with the communities it is based in.

The overall management of the RHIYA is based upon the unique modus operandi of its predecessor, the RHI, with the European Union (EU) and the UNFPA providing a macro-level management and overall decision making structure. At country level, both organisations can draw upon their decentralised structures, involving the European Commission delegations and UNFPA country and field offices for guidance and support. The EU plays a large role in the funding of the RHIYA and also offers some policy guidance, while UNFPA is responsible for managing and implementing the RHIYA.
