Adolescents 360 outcome evaluation: Summary report of the baseline survey in Ethiopia
The innovative, interdisciplinary Adolescents 360 (A360) programme being rolled out across Ethiopia, Nigeria and Tanzania uses human-centred design (HCD) to create context-specific multi-component interventions with the aim of increasing voluntary modern contraceptive use among adolescent girls aged 15–19 years.
There is a lack of evidence on the health impact of projects that employ HCD. The A360 evaluation comprises an outcome evaluation, a process evaluation and a cost-effectiveness study. The primary objective of the outcome evaluation is to assess the impact of the A360 programme on the voluntary use of modern contraception (the modern contraceptive prevalence rate (mCPR)) among sexually active girls aged 15–19 years. A baseline survey is being conducted prior to the scale-up of the programme’s interventions, with an endline survey planned for late 2019. This report details the findings from the baseline survey in one of the three A360 countries—Ethiopia.
