IAS Satellite Session to Explore Using Human-centered Design to Improve Outcomes Across the HIV Continuum of Care

June 17th, 2020 | Event


Save the Date: Please join JSI on Thursday, July 9 for an AIDS2020 satellite session that explores the process and outcomes of using human-centered design (HCD) across multiple HIV prevention interventions, including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and HIV self-testing. 

The panel, moderated by Emily Harris, USAID Office of HIV and AIDS, will feature Cal Bruns, chief innovationist at Matchboxology; Michelle Kreger, senior portfolio manager at IDEO.org, and Mwansa Njelesani-Kaira, JSI Senior Advisor for Prevention & Behavioural Change at the USAID DISCOVER-Health Project in Zambia.

Human-centered design recognizes the individual and uses a co-creation process to develop solutions that fit into their lives. HCD uses empathy, rapid & iterative co-creation, continuous user feedback for transformational change. The panelists will share their real-world experiences at the intersection of design and health.  

We hope this session will act as a call to action to encourage the use and application of HCD in global public health and invite interested participants to join existing global health design communities like Design for Health.
