From 2018 to 2020 Adolescents 360 (A360) designed and scaled its intervention in Tanzania, Kuwa Mjanja. In 2020, funder priorities led to a decision to exit this programming in Tanzania over a 15-month exit period. In an article published in the Frontiers, A360 has documented the experience of pursuing a process of expedited institutionalization of Kuwa Mjanja into government systems over the exit period. The piece reflects on the significant potential of operationalizing user-centered ASRH models within government structures within a narrow time frame.
