REPSSI programme is anchored on the social ecology framework. Although our activities are centered on children, we work to improve families and the communities around them by participating in government processes, coordinating with various technical groups as well as creating a more conducive policy environment. In the 13 countries we operate, REPSSI has been mainstreaming psychosocial support into government departments of social welfare, health and education.
This includes continued and deeper focus on mental health; HIV prevention, testing, treatment and care; sexual and reproductive health and rights.Read More
