About the HCD Exchange

The HCD Exchange is a community of implementers, funders, designers, and evaluators committed to advancing learning and practice related to the integration of human-centered design (HCD) and adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) in low-resource settings.

The HCD Exchange was launched in 2018 and is entering its next phase. Over the next two years we are excited to expand the community of partners and actors who are reaching and engaging youth effectively through HCD to improve ASRH programs and outcomes.

Together, we will generate tools and learning across the community and build capacity and networks that advance our practice in this new and exciting area of global health.

Our Youth Leadership Hub will guide our work and catalyze partnerships with young people and youth-focused service providers and advocates.
