New Resource: DISC Self-Inject Insights Synthesis from Evidence-Based Design

4 October, 2021

Dear HIFA Community,

We are pleased to share a new resource from the Delivering Innovations in Self Care (DISC) project. The resource “Highlights: Insights Synthesis—Insights Gained Through Evidence-Based Design” <https://www.psi.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/DISC-Insights-Synthesis-R...

- Provides an overview of key findings from the DISC project’s work to understand the self-inject landscape in Nigeria and Uganda, in order to inform DISC SBC interventions.

- Adopts a user-journey approach to distill factors influencing women’s movement from awareness of self-inject to intent, use, continuation, and advocacy.

- Focuses on women’s experiences and needs, as well as those of the public and private sector actors on whom they rely.

- Works to highlight design and implementation opportunities, as well as potential areas for pause and/or further investigation.

We hope this resource will prove useful to our formidable community of peers working to advance self-care as a cornerstone of SRH care.

With warm wishes—and apologies for any cross-posting,

Claire Cole
