Abt associates: Healthcare toolkit
Design for Social Impact
Paper based, locally manufactured solution
Abt Associates engaged Think Design for designing a tool to reduce delay along the care pathway for Pneumonia and Diarrhea in rural Bihar for reducing high infant mortality rate. The intervention needed to develop training and communication tools that will help the informal health providers in identifying severe cases and make timely referral to doctors. The solution is completely paper based and in physical form; thus paving way for massive adoption across several villages.
