Human-centered design - which prioritizes listening, empathy, prototyping and iteration in collaboration with communities - still isn’t widely applied to the creation of SBCC interventions, despite how much they rely on participatory processes. This panel’s objective is to discuss creative and community-centered SBCC interventions in Ghana, Malawi and Sierra Leone that systematically utilized human-centered design for behavior change. Panelists will also discuss how these interventions were designed for scale from the outset and rigorously evaluated to test the theory of change pathways and to document the entire design process.
