Informed Consent: Adults

What is it?

A short script used by A360 to secure the full and informed consent of parents of adolescents, in-laws, adult male partners, community influencers, and providers.

We used informed consent to ensure adults knew (1) the purpose of our study, (2) topics we’d discuss, (3) how we’d ensure their confidentiality, (4) that their participation was completely voluntary, and (5) who they can contact for more information. We used this process in all three countries, though the example shared here is from our Ethiopia team.
