The mixed methods evaluation took place from February-July 2018. NIMR provided technical guidance, especially in protocol development and data analysis. The following aims guided the evaluation a) Assess participant knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs related to SRH, HIV, gender equity, and positive identity formation b) Assess and compare effectiveness of the program among in-school and out-of-school youth c) Identify critical components to implementation fidelity and delivery Quantitative pre-tests were administered to in-school and out-of-school participants aged 13-19 (n=258, mean age=14.8 years), including measures of SRH knowledge, gender-equitable attitudes, and health-seeking behaviours. Qualitative data was collected from February-April 2018 and included Focus Group Discussions (FGDs; n=2) with trained ‘Coaches’ who facilitate the program, and in-depth interviews (IDIs) with program staff (n=8). Descriptive statistics were calculated and qualitative data were reviewed for emergent themes, then merged for triangulation. End-line quantitative analysis is still being finalised.
