With funding from Swedish International Development cooperation Agency (SIDA), Plan Uganda1, in partnership with CDFU and Plan UK implemented a two-year ASRHR project in the sub counties of Ogur, Barr, and Agweng in Lira District; and Apala, Aloi, Abia and Akura in Alebtong District. The ASRHR project primarily targeted adolescent girls and boys (13 to 19 years) both in and out of school. The project also targeted secondary influencers including parents, opinion leaders (including faith based leaders) in the community and professional health workers to create a conducive environment for project success and sustainability. The overall target number of adolescents in and out of school was 27,000 and 940 secondary influencers. Several approaches primarily targeting two adolescent categories namely the out of school and in-school were used in implementing project activities. The approaches for out of school included: peer to peer approach, radio talk shows, parent’s community dialogue, recording debates and airing before live radio talk shows, toll free counseling telephone, and capacity building of duty bearers such as health workers, opinion leaders and teachers. On the other hand the in school approaches were: health education through use of trigger video and music, drama and debates. It is against this background that an end of project evaluation was commissioned to assess progress made towards achieving project goal and objectives. The purpose of the project was to increase access to sexual reproductive health information and services among adolescent girls and boys in Lira and Alebtong district by end of Dec 2013.
