Community Innovation in Ghana
Designed and facilitated a series of workshops in NY and Ghana to solicit input from subject matter experts as well as in-country community-based organizations in order to develop and test innovative models for incentivizing communities to support women seeking pre and neo-natal care and support behavioral change.  At each phase, comprehensive presentations were created to represent learning and progress. We developed material and authored white papers to communicate and disseminate the project’s approach and design methodology. The project was part of a challenge from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as to whether innovations for solving the most extreme problems in maternal and infant health could be developed with the communities most affected by them.
