We are extremely excited to introduce you to the second batch of HCDExchange Youth Leadership Hub Associates. The Youth Leadership Hub (YLH) is a cohort of eight youth HCD+ASRH leaders from sub-Saharan Africa or South Asia who offer insight on young people’s lives and experiences, lead meaningful youth engagement efforts, and demonstrate youth leadership across HCDExchange’s work.
The importance of Ethics is particularly crucial when considering engagement with vulnerable populations and sensitive topics. Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health sits at the confluence of these.
As we work to build the field of HCD + ASRH as a more mainstream way of running this kind of programming, we want to ensure that quality remains central to these programmes, and there are universal standards for evaluating quality. This helps to ensure that all stakeholders are held accountable to the same standard and we can avoid the use of tokenistic human-centred design approaches.
On this call, we explored the question: how might human-centred design facilitate the process of gathering and using informative insights from youth?
