Ethiopia Data Use Partnership Co-Creation Workshop Report


The Ethiopia Data Use Partnership (DUP) is a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-funded collaborative endeavor of the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Health and a JSI-led consortium currently includes: Regenstrief Institute, University of Gondar, and Gobee Group. The DUP aims to improve the collection and use of high-quality routine information in the health sector, leading to better quality, efficiency, and availability of primary health and nutrition services at all levels of the health system.

The DUP project works to change the culture of data use throughout the health sector, one strategy for this change is using human-centered design (HCD). The co-creation workshop was the kickoff HCD event to introduce key stakeholders to the HCD process and give exposure to HCD mindsets.

The findings from the workshop will inform our next steps in the project, which include:

  • Design sprints (a rapid solutions-finding and testing event on a specific data use problem),
  • Innovation lab development (an ongoing exploration for infusing HCD mindsets into the everyday work at all levels of the health sector)
  • Network of Data Use Innovators (a network of innovators that can amplify the methods of the HCD process and innovation)
  • HCD toolkit (an iterative toolkit of HCD methods and best practices)
