Discover is the first stage of Core’s human-centered design process. It commits time upfront to explore and define the sexual and reproductive health problem space together with experts and partners, and with the women affected by it.
The extensive desk research and in-depth discussions around Kenyan women’s sexual and reproductive experiences was complemented by direct immersion in the field. The team deployed a ‘wide lens’ to gain first-hand insights into the experience of Kenyan women with sexual and reproductive health, with a focus on women’s life course transitions.
These insights are key as they help shape the subsequent phases of the project.
