Working towards evidence and rights based SRHR interventions for young people

This webpage is for organisations who implement SRHR education for young people and want to analyse their programme, as well as those who are planning to develop a new programme. It can be used by professionals and organisations without any guidance or interaction, but the best option is to get training and support of an expert on how to use the tool and strengthen your programme activities. In Pakistan and South Africa this has proved to be an effective way of learning from other organisations and sharing experiences. Many organisations want to improve young people’s quality of life and health, so they want to implement programmes that are good quality too. But developing effective programmes is not easy.

How effective is your programme?

Do a quick test to find out if you fully integrate Theories of Behaviour Change in your programme and have integrated characteristics of effective interventions!

Experience and evidence gained from work done all over the world shows what does and what does not contribute to quality. In the Planning and Support Tool and on this webpage we provide the most important evidence, in a way that is useful for organisations who are working in the day-to-day practice of SRHR education for young people but have limited time and resources. It can be used to plan, design new interventions, but also to analyse existing interventions and strengthen them.

If you are interested to look at the quality of your own intervention and programme we advice you to:

  • Gain understanding what an evidence and rights based approach is.
  • Familiarise yourself with Intervention Mapping Steps.
  • Be confident and able to (fully) apply theories of behaviour change within your own programme.
  • Integrate all characteristics of effective interventions in your own programme.
  • Start to measure effects of your programme activities on outcome level.
