Mitigating infant mortality through design
Think Design worked with ABT Associates to mitigate infant mortality in Bihar. By employing Design Thinking approaches, we identified specific areas of intervention, human-to-human interactions, and dynamics within the groups. We conceptualized and prototyped solutions, and finally deployed these solutions.
The resulting solution is multi-disciplinary and includes paper-based forms, file folders, communication material, and a set of practices to be followed in order to make the interventions work. Using principles of design for social change helped Think Design and ABT Associates to positively impact this vulnerable population. Read More
