Background

"Music is a symbol of friendship in our country. It helps us to be released from depression in order to have a better future. I think we will learn how to show others who are HIV+ that they have a value for themselves and for their country."•• Community Music Leaders, Kigali, Rwanda

Rwanda Youth Music was developed at the invitation of local partner WE-ACTx for Hope to support the needs of children and young people living with HIV. The most appropriate and effective musical approaches are embedded in WE-ACTx for Hope’s clinical support structure, sustainably providing young patients with opportunities for positive creative expression and social empowerment through musical interaction.
