Week #1: Field visit to Kibera

This week Simon and Isabella conducted fieldwork in Kibera, in order to better understand the work and learning practices of Community Health Workers (CHWs), and supervisory practices of Community Health Extention Workers (CHEWs).

Simon and Isabella shadowed and interviewed CHWs, CHEWs, and Community Health Committee (CHC) members. As part of the data collection process, they also undertook photo-elicitation tasks with the CHWs: Simon and Isabella asked CHWs to take pictures of their practices during one week, and to come back with a photo-story relating key aspects of their “life as a CHW”. The discussion around the photos revealed extremely interesting insights for the next phase of the project: the collaborative design of the mobile intervention.
