After six years of evaluating the Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (URHI), the MLE Project is pleased to announce the release of our End of Project report.

As we move into the next chapter of urban reproductive health with The Challenge Initiative (TCI), MLE wanted to ensure key learning was passed on and shared with a wide audience.
