It features chapters on initiatives implemented in Namibia, Rwanda, Somalia, Tanzania, Mozambique, Papua New Guinea, Liberia and Uganda. It is hoped that the lessons learned and programmatic good practices identified will contribute to the toolbox of knowledge resources that programmers draw upon as they design, pilot, adjust and implement more effective interventions.
