IxDA Seattle is pleased to host Anna Rapp, Associate Program Officer with the Vaccine Delivery Team at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Please join us and General Assembly for an informative and inspiring presentation on global health challenges and human-centered design solutions.
Sometimes a 10-cent piece of paper is the difference between a life and a death. Child health records can play a vital role in keeping children around the world healthy.
Unfortunately, child health records often suffer from poor accuracy, low availability and non-use. Increasing evidence shows that the design and format of these tools themselves can make a difference in the way that they are used, and indeed in the health of the families who use them.
Using child health records as a case study, we’ll discuss how human-centered design influences our thinking and global health and development work at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
