This publication illustrates the Principles of Design and Global Health. It draws on Yale University’s Ten Principles to Strengthen Global Health, Alma Ata Declaration, Principles for Global Health Research, Standford University’s d.mindsets, IDEO’s 7 Values that Drive design and Braun’s 10 Principles of “Good Design”.
Inside you'll find:
"We understand that health systems sit at the intersection of complex global, national, regional, and local culture and politics. We elevate contextual factors through rich user engagement and use an iterative approach to help adapt solutions to different cultures and ensure a good fit to national, regional, and local contexts."
This resource helps articulate the benefits that design skills and mindsets can bring to global health projects through a curated set of value of design statements that connect the benefits of design to key challenges facing the global health community.
We co-created the resources available on this website in conversation with representatives from the global health community. Five types of users (or profiles) emerged that represent the different stages of a global health practitioner in his/her path towards adoption and implementation of design in his/her work. Which of the profiles do you fit into?
