The Joint Programme, “A Rights-Based Approach to Adolescents and Youth Development in Ethiopia” aims to contribute to improved development of adolescents and young people by promoting rights relating to HIV/AIDS, sexual and reproductive health, gender equality and sustainable livelihoods. The programme is funded by the Royal Norwegian Embassy (RNE), and implemented by UNFPA and UNICEF country offices. The Joint Programme has been implemented over the period 2007-June 2013 in 25 target woredas of five regions of Ethiopia (Addis Ababa, Afar, Amhara, Oromia and SNNPR). These regions cover 23 million adolescents and young people, and the programme woredas include 12 public universities and HIV “hotspots”.
