This programme update describes the highlights from the programme in the past year, a programme overview, country updates, and relevant events.

Some highlights from the past year include:

– Revised SHN Common Approach to Sponsorship Programming

– Very Young Adolescents

– Building Evidence for Malaria Control in Schools: Malawi and Mali

… Amongst other exciting progress!
