summary

This project addresses the need to optimize the scale-up of parenting programs to prevent violence against children in low- and middle-income countries. It uses a mixed methods approach to evaluate the quality of delivery and impact of an evidence-based parenting program for adolescents, Parenting for Lifelong Health for Adolescents (PLH-Teens, known as Furaha Teens in Tanzania). The study is conducted within the national scale-up of the program by Pact and local community service organizations (CSOs) in Tanzania as part of the USAID-funded Kizazi Kipya Project.
