The “Let’s Talk” campaign is a partnership project between UNFPA, the Ministry of Public Health and the National Aids Control Program, Masar association, the YPEER network, and the VAPA association.
It aims at promoting the well-being of young people, mainly through improving young people’s knowledge on sexual and reproductive health and contributing to improving the provision of relevant health information and services including those related to HIV/AIDS.
