Keeping Girls in School Process Evaluation

The Keeping Girls in Schools (KGS) programme is a component of the Global Fund Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) initiative designed to reach 14-18 year old girls in South Africa. It has delivered a package of age-appropriate services to girls in a selection of Quintile 1-3 schools in each of ten districts across South Africa over three years from April 2016 to March 2019. The aim of the programme is to decrease new HIV infections in girls and young women, decrease learner pregnancies and keep girls in school until they complete high school.

A process evaluation was conducted for NACOSA and the Global Fund by Strategic Analytics & Management and Clacherty & Associates and Stellenbosch University to describe how the programme is being implemented across different implementation districts, to gather evidence of fidelity to the designed programme and to reflect on areas for improvement.
