Design for Health Bootcamps


We live in a complex world. Being human is messy. Global health and wellbeing challenges need new ways of thinking.

Design for Health offers a fresh perspective for those wanting to improve health service delivery, service structures, products, and interventions. It draws on creative, human-centred approaches to better understand the complex contexts surrounding health and wellbeing and generate future health solutions that address the needs of the end-user.

The Design for Health Bootcamp will help you apply creative and collaborative skills and approaches to lead change in the health and wellbeing space. You will learn different ways of identifying health and wellbeing problems within your workplace and prototype experience-driven solutions using a variety of design-led approaches. You will use empathy to guide you through a playful, curious and meaningful design collaboration that lead to improved health experiences and outcomes.

Not your usual design thinking workshop.

We are a team of Design for Health experts with experience in public and community care sectors. Our bootcamp will help you apply creative tools and methods to tackle health-related challenges faced by communities, NGOs, and public and private healthcare organisations.  

By the end of this interactive and immersive 2-day bootcamp, you will:

  • Develop a deeper understanding of the value of design in health
