ADOS – Technical support, evaluation, and communication
Better Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights for Adolescent Girls in Senegal (ADOS), co-funded by IDRC and Global Affairs Canada, seeks to generate Senegal-specific insights. The aim is to better understand and address the interface between adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights and sexual and gender-based violence, and to support policymakers’ and community leaders’ uptake of implementation research and of youth’s inclusion.
This project will support technical assistance for the program’s grantees, the evaluation of the program, and communication with and engagement of key stakeholders. Local experts in gender analysis, implementation research, ethics, and knowledge translation will be recruited to support the selection/evaluation of research projects, build the capacity of recipients, and provide ongoing follow-up to support research and youth organizations in effectively implementing their respective projects.
An evaluation expert will also be retained to facilitate the communication of the program’s logic model and performance management framework with key stakeholders, establish the program’s baseline, and design tools for effective and ongoing data collection. The capacity of both research teams and youth teams will be strengthened to address the program’s monitoring and learning needs. Finally, the program will regularly engage with various stakeholders and produce knowledge and communication products for broader outreach.
