About the event

This month we are collaborating closely with the team at Itad who led the process evaluation of the Adolescents 360 (A360) project.

As they have finalized the evaluation results from the first phase of the project, the Itad team are reflecting on both their process and the results, to try to integrate the learnings into the second phase. They are asking the question how might we package and share these evaluation finding with younger audiences?

On February 10th, we’ll be having a workshop with 9 youth who participated in the project as designers, implementers, and evaluators to prototype creative and effective ways that might improve how youth receive and understand the results.

On February 22nd, we’ll have a community-wide webinar to share these prototypes and the lessons that the Itad team has learned along the way. Register here!

A360 aims to increase access to and uptake of voluntary modern contraception among adolescent girls (15-19 years old) in three countries in Africa - Ethiopia, Nigeria and Tanzania - using creative human-centred design approaches.
