Learning from Partnerships: RHI 1998-2002

"The EC/UNFPA Initiative for Reproductive Health in Asia (RHI) represents a significant contribution to meeting the goals of the ICPD Programme of Action. By addressing sexual and reproductive health needs of vulnerable populations while building local capacity to address these needs, the RHI has promoted the reproductive rights of those who have least access to opportunities and services. [...] The RHI has increased access to services, particularly for underserved populations, with attention to improving the quality of services. By tailoring approaches to different needs and contexts and the development of culturally appropriate information, education and communication (IEC) materials, the RHI has reached groups, such as out-of-school youth, men and boys, who had not previously had programmes and projects designed for their specific needs."

Thoraya Ahmed Obaid, Executive Director, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)

Learning from Partnerships draws together best practices and lessons learned from the implementation of the RHI. Not only does it provide a comprehensive overview of a complex and intricate intervention, but also allows the opportunity to take stock and review the successes and failures of the ambitious and innovative reproductive health initiative jointly implemented by the European Commission (EC) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
