Hi Amanda Patterson, World Relief , My sincerest apologies that we did not respond to your questions sooner! I'll aim to address each of your points below: -As far as costs go, we have not priced everything out quite yet but estimate all costs to be on the lower end. -Bingo calendar: Sure, I think we could add some system that signifies that - perhaps the colored circle in the manual could have a number in it to signify the number of vaccinations needed for that phase. As you mentioned, it would be an extra step, but we could incorporate some sort of sticker system as well to mark the completion of that phase of vaccination. -I'm going to pass some of the technology questions on to the engineers of our team and they will get back to you shortly! As far as the shape goes, it can certainly be changed. It did not have any particular meaning but came from an earlier iteration in which we toyed with the idea of something that could interconnect with other hexagons.
If you wouldn't mind, I would love to get some more feedback on the different prototypes based on your experience: - Is something that hangs on the wall culturally acceptable? How about the idea of wearing a pendant? - Are there any culturally relevant symbols that you are familiar with? - Do you any difference in value between a device that requires a daily action from the caregiver and acts as a daily reminder vs. a device that alerts the caregiver once it is time to get a vaccination and removes some degree of human error? - Some of our research informed us that time is viewed differently - more fluid or relative. In your experience, do people typically follow the same sort of calendar that we do to mark time?
I would greatly appreciate any additional feedback if possible! I would also be happy to switch to email or skype if that would be more convenient. Thank you again for your comments and questions!
