    Abstract

    Purpose: To describe the contexts within which the Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Adolescent HIV Outreach and Treatment programs were evaluated, the effects their evaluations had on their respective programs and, in turn, the effects the program delivery had on the evaluations. Method: The full range of process evaluation heuristics were used to analyze the bi-directional effects of conducting field-based, service delivery data collection. Results: Although data collection efforts sometimes interfered with service delivery, and vice versa, several notable positive effects were disclosed. Conclusion: Specific guidance and recommendations were provided to program designers, behavioral researchers and institutional funding decision makers. Primary amongst them was a call for research evaluation designs that allow for maximum flexibility.
