Core established a Global Advisory Board comprising leading international thinkers and practitioners in the field of public health, medicine, social science, design, and futures, to provide expertise and strategic direction to the project. Importantly, the members of the board were carefully selected to represent regions of the world the project works in.
Key takeaways from the meeting were:
We will continue to engage with the technical community working at the intersection of public health and design and share learnings and outcomes from Core proactively.
Core will mindfully undertake co-creation activities and hone in on the right fit of partners to work with moving into the next phase.
The project will continue position women’s voices about their experiences with sexual and reproductive health as central. It will persist with efforts to bridge the gaps in existing literature and their representation of women’s perspectives.
We continue to explore novel ways of bringing forth and sharing data in creative and engaging ways to elevate the discourse, such as the art objects developed and shared at the meeting
Advocating for human-centered design by example is a key capacity-building component for Core.
