Context matters, particularly in countries where humanitarian crises are recurrent, socioeconomic and health indicators are daunting, governance at the national level is variable, armed conflict abounds, people are fleeing violence both inside and outside the borders, and the donor community faces all too many pleas for assistance and support. In this book, the UNFPA DRC team courageously shares their innovative, silo-breaking strategies, tactics, results and reflections on what they have done differently in positioning the agenda of rights and choice in the 2017 to 2020 period towards the three transformative results zero unmet need for contraception; zero preventable maternal deaths; and zero genderbased violence and harmful practices, such as child marriage and female genital mutilation in the face of unprecedented crisis.
