The NewsHour’s Morocco series starts Wednesday with a report on government reforms brought on by the Arab Spring unrest. Learn more about this fascinating country, its culture and challenges in the slide show above.

You can also read a reporter’s notebook from Ray Suarez on what the king has achieved through a new constitution and new elections, and what activists say still needs to happen. On Thursday we will have a report on an innovative program aimed at preventing HIV infections by teaching imams how to discuss the disease in their communities. Watch a video preview of both reports here.
