Core established a Global Advisory Board comprising leading international thinkers and practitioners in the field of public health, medicine, social science, design, and futures, to provide expertise and strategic direction to the project. Importantly, the members of the board were carefully selected to represent regions of the world the project works in.
On 26 March, 11 members attended the first meeting of the Advisory Board in London. The team provided members with an overview of Core’s progress so far, including data and findings from the Discover and Understand stages of each country. Following the update, the meeting opened up to solicit strategic advice and inputs from the experts present, as the project moves into the Creation stage in the four countries. The Creation stage marks the beginning of the solution prototyping and testing piece of project work.
