For A Project To Apply Design Thinking To Reproductive Health In Zambia

Overview is a San Francisco-based firm that uses the principles of design thinking and human-centered design to solve persistent social problems in developing countries. This grant would support a partnership between and Foundation grantee Marie Stopes International–US in Zambia to use design thinking to prototype new solutions that would increase the number of young women and men using reproductive health services. The Foundation expects this collaboration to provide innovative, scalable, and sustainable solutions for youth reproductive health services, and to demonstrate the value of design thinking to the field more broadly as a different approach to increase the use of reproductive health services. This grant is proposed as part of the Foundation’s new strategy to use new tools and approaches to make sure no woman has an unintended pregnancy in sub-Saharan Africa.
