The Child Health Task Force has partnered with Sonder Collective to support the ministries of health in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Nigeria in re-designing the current technical assistance model using human-centered design (HCD), with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc.(JSI). This approach focuses on the needs and motivations of the end users of technical assistance such as MOH at national and subnational levels. The intention is to enable countries to better implement evidence-based, integrated MNCH interventions. Accordingly, the new co-created vision for technical assistance will emphasize strengthening local capabilities, coordinating partner efforts, and ensuring country-driven objectives. Project activities will take place from 2018-2019.
