Abstract Globally, most of the 4.3 billion people of reproductive age in the world lack access to adequate sexual and reproductive health services. Despite progress towards universal health coverage, the unmet need for sexual and reproductive health interventions is substantial and requires innovative solutions. The combination of digital health and self-care is accelerating the movement towards person-centred health and shifting the focus for many health-related activities from a clinical setting to people at home, in their workplaces or online. Young people in Kenya experience poor sex and reproductive health. Twenty-one percent of adolescent girls diagnosed positive for an STI,5% of young women will have given birth by age 18 and only 25% of adolescent girls report any use of contraception. SH:24 has collaborated with the Child Investment Fund Foundation using an agile design led approach to change the landscape of sex and reproductive health service provision in Kenya. Empowering young people to manage their own sexual & reproductive health through online services. This work has involved re-thinking approaches to delivery of digital health care for low income populations where phones and connectivity are used differently, for example intermittent access or simpler phone technologies. We used a human centred design based approach to focus service development on the needs of users based on the Design Council double diamond process of divergent and convergent thinking. We will describe the iterative development and testing of prototypes and blueprints to inform service development in this emerging area of health care.
