This country case study captures experiences and lessons learned in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) from the Re-Imagining Technical Assistance for Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Health Systems Strengthening (RTA) project, particularly focusing on the co-creation process and its outputs.
Co-creation emphasizes collective creativity and collaborative design; its results are quickly integrated throughout the design process. RTA adopted co-creation as a tool to enable a wide range of stakeholders to collaborate on identifying TA challenges and potential solutions. The process helped to map barriers and opportunities in how TA is designed and delivered, co-create a shared vision and concepts for a new approach to TA, and test, iterate, and develop new models for TA.
In the DRC, RTA held four workshops that served as forums for brainstorming, co-creating, and prototyping and providing a space for sharing, reflection, and joint ownership of project findings.
This document highlights the project’s co-creation process, as well as insights and opportunity areas identified through the co-creation process.
