dc.description.abstract Design has the ability to envision and also integrate within processes for achieving positive societal transformation. Based on my participation in a University-based technology for health care project as a master's thesis I will present a field based design approach for facilitating a collaborative process. I present that a designerly approach can be useful especially in bringing together the users perspective and needs into a multi-disciplinary working team. The University-based project called GloCal is a Mobile Health project from the University of Helsinki. Project GloCal is an effort to reduce infant morbidity and mortality among the underserved populations of the world. I highlight my learning from working with Non-Governmental Organization’s (NGO’s), university researchers and technology developers involved in the project. By presenting the role of the designer in such process, in reflection I will finally share what evolved as a toolset for me during the project. In this manner, the thesis will explore the role of the designer as a facilitator for an inclusive, participatory and iterative process in a technology for healthcare and development project. en
