MRMV programme primarily focuses on empowering young mothers/youth and school students as agents of change for promoting their own right to health. The programme has been implemented in four districts – Dailekh, Surkhet, Banke, and Kathmandu. It seeks to reach parents, families and the wider community in its activities to ensure that access to health care and knowledge of the right to free health services is improved. Focus of the programme is also to promote children, youth and young mothers’ leadership by developing their confidence and capacity to undertake advocacy and campaign work for the improvement of health services.
The programme is ongoing since May 2012 and AYON is involved in series of Interaction and workshop programmes, public hearing with MoHP, Health Division, MoYS, MoWCSW, National Women Commission and moreover, lobby meetings and delegation to top leaders of major political parties and to the related stakeholders as national level advocacy campaigns. AYON has also been engaged in organizing capacity build up trainings, publishing IEC materials on health right issues and prepared documentaries on baseline study and lobby meetings under MRMV programme.
