Discover 1: Common Themes

Nov 10th 2018

Emerging commonalities and possible areas for further exploration in India, Kenya and Nigeria


Upon analysing the dialogue with women and selected experts in India, Kenya and Nigeria, a series of recurring topic areas surfaced. These themes may hold universal implications for a woman’s sense of health and wellbeing.

The recurring themes are presented here in brief as bundled, cross-cutting areas for possible further inquiry and exploration in Discover phase 2. The areas of commonality do not necessarily represent new knowledge, but are important in terms of providing patterns and opportunity for possible design of universally applicable interventions.

They also pose potentially interesting inter-connected dimensions or lenses linked to the emerging country findings. These would need to be reflected on further in the exploration, ideation and co-design phase.
