Workshop Goal and Objectives: The Redesigning Technical Assistance for Maternal, Newborn, Child Health and Health Systems Strenghtening Project (Project) organized an insight and ideation workshop in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) from March 19-20, 2019 to generate, develop and communicating new ideas. The workshop aimed to develop a synergistic understand-ing of the current technical assistance (TA) challenges and opportunities faced by various actors in the DRC health system, and foster a collective ownership of the redesign process.
Participants shared their perspectives on the health system while having the opportunity to hear different viewpoints from other actors. More importantly, the participants were able to empathize and begin to understand the underlying reasons of specific behaviors from their counterparts. The group produced 90+ ideas derived from the opportunity areas and created four concepts to be further developed into preliminary prototypes of the TA redesign.
