Our Community

The HCDExchange Community of Practice

Our Community is made up of individuals and organizations interested in exploring the application of human-centered design in adolescent and youth sexual reproductive health programming. Members range from experts who are actively working in design-led ASRH projects as experienced implementers, designers, evaluators, and young professionals, to those who are curious about HCD as a new approach to global health programming. The HCDExchange is open for anyone to join, and participate in as actively or passively as it serves you.
