As a learning project, PSI’s flagship adolescent sexual and reproductive health program, Adolescents 360 (A360) used its external 2018 mid-term evaluation (MTE) to support corrections and adaptive management over the course of the project’s two-and-a-half-years of implementation, from late 2018 to present-day 2020.
