Design thinking for Global Health – Royal Society of Medicine

On 5-Dec-18 I was honoured to be invited as a keynote speaker to contribute to an event held at the Royal Society of Medicine on the role of design in global health. It was as if the event had been set up to showcase our work. Regular readers will be aware of the crucial role design has played in the success of ColaLife and this design element has been recognised by others outside the health sector. Kit Yamoyo – the anti-diarrhoea kit to come out of our work – is in the permanent collections of both the V&A and The Design Museum.
