Process Evaluation Report

This event comes alongside the launch of the process evaluation from the first phase of the A360 project. Here is a great summary that Stefanie Wallach from Itad provides about the key findings from this evaluation, which we’ll talk more about during the webinar!

  • A360 exceeded performance expectations since the mid-term review. The program reached over 400,000 adolescent girls with modern methods between 2017 and 2020 - compared to a target of 285,000.
  • The human centered design process brought rigor and innovation to A360 providing space to try out new ideas and bring them to fruition, and creating a mechanism to involve young people in design. Although, engaging a multi-disciplinary consortium led to challenges.
  • A360’s use of adaptive implementation and meaningful youth engagement complemented the HCD process and added value by building on the skills and mindsets fostered through the design process to help country teams respond to variable performance, challenges and opportunities.
  • A360’s strong performance is underpinned by several common success factors: life and vocational skills messaging, flexible service delivery models, working through public health facilities, and engaging gov’t, trusted local stakeholders and husbands.
  • Key gaps and challenges remain, and should be a focus for the program in its next phase: addressing sociocultural barriers to contraceptive access for girls, challenges with service provider capacity and bias, reliance on A360 staff and intensive in-person mobilization approaches, and supporting girls to continue to use contraception in the longer term.
