Redone with a sight

The Village Health Sanitation Nutrition Day (VHSND) team has been seeing a lot of action in the last few months. We have been conducting pilot’s of our designed product and services for VHSND’s. After months of brainstorming, designing, manufacturing , holding iterative workshops , and iterating designs we finally reached the stage of piloting. Below are some images of the redesigned VHSND sites:

The first step of the redesign was to entice the beneficiary to come and visit the site. Colorful visual messages were put across the site.When asked beneficiary Renu Devi (name changed) about what she thought was different on the site today, she replied: “sabbse phele sajawat dikha, bada achan laga..” (the first thing that she noticed were the decorations on the site)

To ensure better crowd management, to provide better Ante Natal Checkups and to allow open dialogue about anything partitions were put up at the site. They ensured that at a time, only one beneficiary meets the ANM. Also the privacy provided by the curtains ensured that ANC’s were conducted. Beneficiary Mamta (name changed) said: “Mard hote hai to mushkil hota hai, ab accha tha. Mard nazar nahi aaye to janch me suvidha hui” ( In the presence of men ANC examinations were difficult, but in the presence of these partitions examinations were really convenient)

Sanitation Bucket                      Oath Board

A sanitation bucket was kept at the site to help inculcate the habit of hand washing. This received wide acclaim from beneficiaries, “Sab hath dhi rahe the ANM, ASHA ne bhi hanth dhoye, bahut acchan laga.” (Everyone was washing hands, even the ANM and ASHA, it felt really nice)

To ensure greater beneficiary interaction we created an oath board. On this beneficiaries mark their thumb prints as a promise to keep themselves and their family healthy.

Next visit board                                                                                         Mobilization Tokens

Another innovation was about telling and reminding the beneficiary time and again about the date of the next VHSND. We put up boards with the next visit date and the photos of their Forward Health Workers.

Mobilization tokens were distributed across the village, which resulted in higher turnouts and better beneficiary categorization.

 

Here are some more photos from the redesigned site

The piloting’s gave us further feedback’s and a more enhanced understanding of our designs. Anticipating to see some of these designs being spread across the state.
