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

Claire Cole

Dear IBP 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”:


·         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,

Claire Cole
