Core Nigeria’s Virtual Network brings together actors and organisations working in primary healthcare to meet one another and gain introductory knowledge of human-centered design (HCD) tools and methods. Network members will form a community of practice to continue collaborating, sharing knowledge, and exploring how they can incorporate HCD into programme design to improve primary healthcare services during and after the pandemic.
The Virtual Network consists of a diverse base of stakeholders including state and federal government representatives, non-governmental organisations, and donors. Nigerian design community members will also engage with the Virtual Network, sharing insights and expertise. Network sessions will also link with Design Clinic phases so that members can follow and learn from the clinic’s progress.
