Session Abstract (150 words): 

Oral Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is a powerful intervention to prevent HIV acquisition among people at substantial risk. In Kenya, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation supports Jilinde, an ambitious project aiming to provide PrEP to over 20,000 high-risk people—including female sex workers (FSWs), men who have sex with men (MSM), and adolescent girls and young women (AGYW). Using developmental evaluation approaches, target group members, facility staff, and project staff gather regularly in separate groups to review and reflect on available data. Data sources include routine service delivery data (e.g., numbers enrolled, retained, adherent), qualitative interviews with clients and providers, client exit interviews, and lived experience of users. In these review meetings, participants assess progress of the previous meeting’s action plans, reflect on emerging findings, and create new action plans. This session will discuss project changes based on review meetings, present how we implemented developmental evaluation and explore alternatives.
