How we work

We partner with health providers as early as possible in the ideation of content or technologies. Then we work with our partners, their users, and other stakeholders, to come up with clear ideas on what is achievable and impactful.

We focus on truly engaging with users through workshops, and using rapid prototyping to quickly arrive at minimally viable and maximally impactful solutions.

We work with our partners to ensure a successful launch, because we know that context and support structures are critical to the successful adoption of any content or technology.

And we continue to work with our partners, post-launch, to iterate and improve on what it is we’ve done to date, using feedback from data and from people to drive successful outcomes.


Our Service Design team has extensive experience using the following tools throughout the design cycle for creating either content or digital interventions:

  • Innovation Workshops

  • User Workshops

  • User Testing

  • Stakeholder Engagements

  • Project Sprints

  • Instructional Design

  • Pedagogical Design

To create impactful solutions using the following technologies:

  • Narrative Video 

  • Animation 

  • Virtual Reality

  • Mobile Applications

  • Web Based Platforms 

  • Front End Development 

  • Open Source Solutions



MedMentor Decision Support is based on South African clinical guidelines for HIV treatment. It was designed to help nurses in primary care settings to effectively treat HIV patients, empowering them to determine whether a patient is eligible for ARV treatment, what drugs to use, and when to initiate treatment. The app goes a step further by providing access to a referral system and the HIV hotline. MedMentor is currently in use in South Africa and Côte d’Ivoire.

I have trained professional clinical staff in the public sector for many years, and seen the use of technology gaining ground in the field of HIV patient care. This AVIRO App is easy and quick to download. Simplicity remains it’s  key to being used on-site now by many healthcare professionals

MSF and Aviro Health partnered to revitalize a 10 year old paper-based HIV counselling model. With focus on the youth/adolescent cohort, we not only innovate on content creation but also on content delivery channels such as mobile, web and virtual reality. The aim is to develop a youth education syllabus which speaks to the unique challenges identified by youth, but is still scalable to Africa at large.
