This report is a summary of data collected in Malawi by local partners to assess the impact of the integrated program on overall objectives at midpoint (covering the period Nov. 2012 – Sept 2014). In addition to providing a preliminary assessment of results to date, the midterm evaluation has proved useful to provide the team with information to make mid-course corrections and amendments to the overall project to ensure maximum impact in both the pilot site (Malawi) and the replication site (Tanzania). The evaluation used a mixed methods approach to triangulate data, incorporating a survey, perceived impact questionnaire, knowledge assessment retention test and audience reception study. The robustness of thematic analysis, combined with researcher triangulation, lends credibility to the research results reported here.
