4. Adaptive Implementation

Never Stop Learning

We’re not shy about our end goal: a future where girls and young women have the tools they need to pursue the lives they want, with contraception as a critical first step.

We know the road to that future is paved with complexity, so we set up systems to help navigate it well. We stay curious. We stay committed to youth partnership. We focus on understanding context and our own implementation—because we know that is what it takes to scale-up AYSRH interventions so that they stay responsive to the needs of girls,  and the health system actors on whom they depend.

On a regular basis, A360 country teams unite to think critically, using mixed methods data and ongoing partnerships with youth and local actors to continuously improve as our interventions are scaled. Together, these Adaptive Implementation teams aim to learn from our implementation sites, considering whether and how to adapt for optimal results, while maintaining fidelity to the ‘core’ of what makes our interventions deliver value for girls.

This powerful process will take you beyond standard metrics. Your teams will come together in unexpected ways, breaking down silos, leaning in to learn from the unexpected, and gaining tools to continually assess the quality of A360’s implementation and responsiveness to local needs—as seen through the eyes of our partners and the girls we serve.
