The goal of our project was to work in collaboration with the people of Dwenase, Ghana to improve their health center using a human-centered co-design process. Human-centered means empathizing with the local people, allowing designers to visualize and understand the effects that potential solutions could have on the community. Additionally, co-design is working with the community to develop solutions together, since they know best what they need and what will work. We aimed to blend together contributions from the community - the “local experts” - with that of the “academic experts” to create the best possible solution.
