A360’s Smart Start is an intervention that uses financial planning as an entry point to engage young married couples in planning their futures and reaching financial stability, positioning contraception as a tool to achieve their self-defined goals. Smart Start supports girls aged 15-19 and their partners to understand the resources they’ll need for the families they desire. This technical brief analyzes A360’s strategy and lessons learned to date, presenting a case study of the A360 experience in Ethiopia, and offering considerations for similar AYSRH implementation in future settings.
