10.7 Design Lab: from insights to action

The design drivers were brought for discussion in an expert led Design Lab, which aimed to co-create a future vision for ASHAs and chart a course for co-creation of solutions and prototyping in the next phase of the project.

Over a course of three days in October 2019, the expert group participated in a series of workshops focused on learning from each of the data streams, the design drivers were used as a solutioneering framework to identify the needs of the ASHA by converting the findings into actionable challenge statements - How Might We’s (HMW).

These ideas formed the basis for further ideation around the concept of the ASHA 2.0: “If we were to create a new version of the ASHA cadre, what would it look like?” The resulting visions gave a goal of what the ASHA could be. Finally, the insights lead to a clear brief to guide the next stages of co-design and solution prototyping during the Phase III Create.
