Tuberculosis (TB) is a curable disease however this fact doesn't always sink in. In Uganda, TB is a major concern and countless research projects have been completed to address the problem with mixed success. During my time with The Better Lab, the San Francisco General Hospital design group, we partnered with a TB research group to apply design thinking to this problem. My role involved researching Ugandan culture, developing an interview guide, and developing sacrificial prototypes. I was also involved in leading interviews in the country. After traveling to 4 hospitals in the country, completing 15+ interviews, and multiple house visits, the research team synthesized the insights to develop a path forward for improving TB medication adherence.
