Adolescent Needs and Mindsets, Desires and Preferences: Insights from HCD+ASRH Programs. A Landscape Analysis: Publication 2

The integration of human-centered design (HCD) in global health practice is an emerging area of exploration and learning. To advance learning on the application of HCD in adolescent sexual reproductive health (HCD+ASRH), the HCDExchange conducted a landscape analysis examining the generation and use of adolescent insights through HCD. The landscape analysis focuses on HCD+ASRH programs and experiences in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. The results of this analysis are presented in two complementary publications. This publication 2 illustrates and discusses the types of insights generated in HCD+ASRH programs reviewed in this landscape analysis, categorizing them as insights related to adolescent needs and mindsets, desires and preferences. Publication 1 addresses the purpose and process of generating and applying adolescent insights through HCD in the context of ASRH programming. It also discusses the value of using an HCD approach, and briefly illustrates solutions that have emerged from HCD+ASRH programs in the last ten years.
