A USAID-funded project- Innovations – seeks to encourage healthy maternal and child practices in non-conventional ways. Their prime contractor is taking a human-centered design (HCD) approach to developing interventions. USAID separately contracted with a research organization to evaluate the project. They want to know if the innovative HCD approach yields superior results.
My client is the research organization. I reviewed their survey tools, wrote questions for certain sections, and commented on the proposed survey plan. I also prepared an ethnographic summary on the Dagaare-speaking people the area, highlighting potential challenges to and opportunities for success. I briefed my client and, at my client’s request, briefed the prime contractor.
