HCDExchange Youth Day Convening Report

September 3, 2020

The HCDExchange commemorated International Youth Day (IYD) on August 12, 2020 with a virtual event that brought together designers, young people and their advocates, funders, evaluators, and youth-focused implementing organisations to unpack a range of topics at the intersection of human-centred design (HCD) and sexual health for youth and adolescents. The event united youth with partners in the HCD and adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) fields to generate and share learnings, exchange perspectives, showcase the global and southern nature of the community, and bring to life the different personas of HCDExchange’s community of practice (CoP) in a blend of live and pre-recorded video formats. 

The theme of the event,tackling the global challenge of adolescent sexual health through youth-powered design, invited participants to contemplate how young people can become more centrally integrated in the effort to leverage HCD for interventions to address their sexual and reproductive health needs.
