COVID-19:
RESPONDING TO THE PANDEMIC

As a company dedicated to the health and wellbeing of underserved people globally, we are deeply concerned about the effects of COVID-19 on the communities we serve. While COVID-19 spreads rapidly, we continue providing our partners with critical services as well as responding to the growing crisis. We are supporting partners in pivoting to enable programme continuity, while also developing new ways of supporting preparedness and response efforts across the globe.

Scope is actively contributing to the Inter-agency Working Group of Reproductive Health in Crises. We are researching and advocating for improved COVID-19 services for vulnerable populations, as well as designing rapid, remote means to co-create emergency responses, facility improvements, and community mobilisation efforts.

User tests, feedback and conversations

We presented over 20 design proposals from our ongoing Lab.our Ward project. These proposals and prototypes related to different services, products and architectural solutions aiming to improve the experience of care in maternity wards. The exhibition offered a tangible platform to show and discuss the different prototypes and how they connect to one another on a systemic level. We received invaluable feedback and suggestions from the hundreds of participants who tested the designs over the two days.
