How does RHIYA relate to RHI

The RHIYA builds upon the successes and lessons learned of the RHI, which was implemented between 1998 and 2002. The RHIYA operates in the same seven South and Southeast Asian countries, and is managed by the same unique partnership of the UNFPA together with the European Union (EU).

Unlike the RHI, which had different country focus areas, the RHIYA concentrates on the unmet sexual and reproductive health needs of youth and adolescents, as this was the area, in which an Initiative, such as the RHIYA, could make the most significant and sustainable impact.

The comparative advantage of non-governmental and community based organisations, already demonstrated in the RHI, in dealing with this sensitive issue meant that a large number of (national and local) partners from the RHI were retained as implementing partners within the RHIYA.
