Human-centered and systems-informed design to reduce childhood vulnerability to disease.
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
India
2016 - 2019

Panch Paar, beyond five in Hindi, was a two year design research and intervention project aiming to understand the risk factors and states of vulnerability that impact under five mortality in Bihar, India.

The project developed a process by which children at risk are identified, screened, tracked and ultimately cared for through a suite of innovative solutions. The contextual inquiry was conducted in the Samastipur region in Bihar into the household experience of childhood vulnerability.

The work was led by Delhi based Vihara Innovation Network (VIN) in collaboration with CAREIndia. Scope’s role in the consortium was to advise on service design and design strategy with hands on participation in field work and workshops.
