Delivering on Girl-Powered Programming

Adolescents 360 (A360) proves that when we put girls and their needs at the center of program design, development, measurement and evaluation, we can tip the scales for girl-powered modern contraceptive programming. 

And the evidence backs it.

The latest evaluation reports released by Itad, A360’s third-party evaluator, documents the efficacy and sustainability of working in partnership with young people to transform how we can deliver SRH programs that serve not only girls but the health systems that will ultimately own the interventions.

Smart Start speaks to couples’ expressed desires for financial stability—making it an effective platform to not only reach girls, but equip the national health system with the messaging and tools to better serve their target populations. Click the link above to explore how Smart Start is driving toward health system integration. 

Sexuality, fertility and family planning characteristics of married women aged 15 to 19 years in Ethiopia, Nigeria and Tanzania: a comparative analysis of cross-sectional data 

AYSRH program development is not a one-size-fits all approach. To get girl-centered, we have to understand girls’ needs. This report dives into A360’s three intervention countries to evaluate the sexuality, fertility and contraceptive use characteristics of married adolescent women.
