Hi Alenwi and Team,

We’re excited to share feedback and questions with you from a set of experts that are supporting this Challenge.

We encourage you to think about this feedback as you continue to improve your idea, whether that’s refining it or adding more context. You are welcome to respond in the comments section and/or to incorporate feedback into the text of your idea. Your idea and all associated comments will all be reviewed during the final review process, but we recommend putting all critical information in the body of your contribution somewhere. It's ok if you don't have all the answers, we know you are tackling really hard problems and are also interested in how you are thinking about these challenges.

Experts were excited about:
Considered the Stigma-free environment in accessing the SRH information and services
Bold approach in a sense of its uniqueness in reaching the adolescents

Questions experts had:
1) What's the availability of health care workers (or peer counselors?) when the service is needed. Are they going to receive any incentives?
2) Is their "auto access space" really stigma free space? Idea seems that this space will be set up at school or a street and there might be a bit of concern about privacy and security.
3) Can you expand on any of the legal challenges general risk mitigation that's needed for an idea like this?

In case you missed it, check out this Storytelling Toolkit (http://ideo.to/OZznV4) for inspiration on crafting strong and compelling stories. Storytelling is an incredibly useful tool to articulate an idea and make it come to life for those reading it. Don’t forget - the last day to make changes to your contribution on the OpenIDEO platform is December 10 at 5:00PM PST.

We look forward to reading more, and thank you for the important work that you are doing!

OpenIDEO commented on Changing contraceptive conversations

Hi Paula and Team,

We’re excited to share feedback and questions with you from a set of experts that are supporting this Challenge.

We encourage you to think about this feedback as you continue to improve your idea, whether that’s refining it or adding more context. You are welcome to respond in the comments section and/or to incorporate feedback into the text of your idea. Your idea and all associated comments will all be reviewed during the final review process, but we recommend putting all critical information in the body of your contribution somewhere. It's ok if you don't have all the answers, we know you are tackling really hard problems and are also interested in how you are thinking about these challenges.

Experts were excited about:
1) The idea has been well thought out and refined and there are viable implementation mechanisms and potential partnerships in place. 
2) Strength providing a space for questions without fear or stigma. 
3) This approach is similar to resources in the US (http://Bedsider.org, sexinfo ,etc.) However, I think it is a bold way of answering a question in the regions noted for beta testing. The experience in the region and use of agile tech stands out to me.

Questions experts had:
One expert shared: At first look the idea seems fairly feasible to me. I would say the main points to be improved are whether the planned iteration in very specific communities will also provide the input to scale the solution up or implement it in other contexts - and if not, then what is the plan to do so. Secondly, such an interactive forum would need moderation, translation etc to I think there are some discussions to be had on sustainability. Would love to hear the teams thoughts

What are the differentiation points from what is already out there (like Love Matters) and any support to demonstrate that the platform is indeed able to attract the desired target groups and be popular on social networks.

Can you share more information on how false information will be monitored and flagged. Myths and community/family experience has a powerful impact on contraceptive decision making.

I would be interested to know how they plan to adapt this to different contexts or scale it up as right now it seems to be a rather specific exercise for Nepal and Tanzania.

Are you including training to ensure that clinicians are providing information using a shared-decision making approach, rather than tier-effectiveness, about all methods of contraception.

OpenIDEO commented on Candid: a tool for talking about it

Hi Kimiya and Team,

We’re excited to share feedback and questions with you from a set of experts that are supporting this Challenge.

It's ok if you don't have all the answers, we know you are tackling really hard problems and are also interested in how you are thinking about these challenges.

Experts were excited about:
1) The project seems to fill a gap in terms of a joint parent-children solution for sexual education that uses technology.
2) The interactive nature, for both the parents and children, stood out.
3) Strengthening parent-children relationship around comprehensive sexuality education is a very interesting approach. It provides a platform to interact based on relevant content and might help to move beyond the awkwardness of talking about these subjects in the home.

Questions experts had:
1) How do you recruit people to participate? How children and parents complete modules? Is there a beginning and an end to the process? How do you create developmentally appropriate content? How would you track knowledge and attitudinal change?
2) Can you provide a clear plan on how to expand into a more global context? Dima Boulad brings up an important point, how are you planning on expanding beyond the US market? There are MANY important factors to considering when expanding to different communities- especially as UNFPA is interested in serving hard-to-reach and under-resourced communities globally how are you thinking about these? Who will your partners be? How can you implement quickly yet thoughtfully?
