Dear Eunice,

Thank you for your question! We will have a few different controls/approaches in place to ensure we capture a representative sample:
• We will conduct focus group interviews among in school and out of school youth. These youth may be identified through partner organisations working with adolescents and/or through community outreach. 
• We will engage partners and community members in focus group discussions around their perceptions on barriers and access to SRH by adolescents.
• We will also collect information from youth already accessing SRH services at our existing clinic
• We will send a survey invitation to Heads of Schools, Churches, Mosques, and Communities to sensitize them before the actual day of collecting the data. This will ensure that the focus groups are well constituted and attendances at the discussions are optimal. 
• We will work with regional/district Coordinators for ASRH to improve the quality of the data.
• We will engage adolescents in the design and implementation of the data collection exercise, which is why we don't have any pre-defined indicators yet.

Best wishes,

Dear Liz,

Thank you for your question!  Yes, we will utilize focus groups. We have a number of plans to ensure we get a representative sample:
• We will conduct focus group interviews among in school and out of school youth. These youth may be identified through partner organisations working with adolescents and/or through community outreach. 
• We will engage partners and community members in focus group discussions around their perceptions on barriers and access to SRH by adolescents.
• We will also collect information from youth already accessing SRH services at our existing clinic
• We will send a survey invitation to Heads of Schools, Churches, Mosques, and Communities to sensitize them before the actual day of collecting the data. This will ensure that the focus groups are well constituted and attendances at the discussions are optimal. 
• We will work with regional/district Coordinators for ASRH to improve the quality of the data.
• We will engage adolescents in the design and implementation of the data collection exercise.

While we do not plan to collect continuous data, we do expect to conduct follow-up focus groups during and after the interventions to assess progress.

Hi Ashley,
Thank you for the feedback! We were having some technical difficulties with image uploads, but hopefully it's working now!
