The Country Cases Series are developed within UNFPA's project “Out-of-School Comprehensive sexuality education for those left furthest behind” in Colombia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Iran and Malawi, with the financial support of Norway. They show some key highlights from the implementation of the Programme at regional/country level and present good practices and lessons learned in reaching young people from left behind populations.
