Living Labs & User Driven Innovation applied on Public Health Risk Mitigation
- Living Lab use in a Pilot for Chronic Kidney Disease of non-traditional causes
- Identify Stakeholders for a Living Lab in El Salvador (including Farm Workers, Health Agriculture, Local Adminitration, Rural Community Represenatives, Social Workers, Medical Staff Members, Goverment Bodies, NGOs like La Isla Foundation, ...)
- Connect Living Lab Approach in El Salvador to LLiSA (Living Labs in Southern Africa)
- It is recommended for the next AT6FUI expert meeting to present case studies and practical experiences of living labs in the area of Public Health Risk Mitigation or similar areas that include Capacity Building for Public Health Experts and for the risk exposed communities with Risk Awareness programmes, because this topic of multidisciplinary user driven innovation is important for maximal impact of Public Health Risk Mitigation. The LL-concept is quite new in the area of Public Health, so comprehensive guidelines for approaching a sustainable implementation should be established (submitted by Alexandre Ribo, INS El Salvador)..
- It is also important the addition of bibliographical references (submitted by Alexandre Ribo, INS El Salvador).
- Zotero is the only research tool that automatically senses content in your web browser, stores the collected references your personal library with a single click. Furthermore you can share the library in groups. It is recommended to create a Zotero Group for Living Labs, in which references are collected and shared in the community for Living Labs. This could be applied for other Public Health Aspects as well (e.g. Chronic Kidney Disease of non-traditional causes) .
- According to the Living Labs Approach the six aspects have to be integrated for implementation Living Labs:
- User Involvement (e.g. Farm Workers as members of the problem solving team for Chronic Kidney Disease of non-traditional causes - they know why risk mitigation strategies are not successful in terms of cultural, social or other drivers)
- Service Creation (e.g. create a service that is regarded as benefitial for rural communities. The service could be a support programme that farming which is obvious for farm workers. At the same time the improved farming strategies could reduce the exposure to agrochemicals)
- Infrastructure (e.g. establish a sustainable infrastructure for provision of resources and capacity building programmes for Public Health Risk Mitigation)
- Governance (e.g. integration of local administration, INS in El Salvador and Health Ministry in El Salvador, so that upscaling of successful case studies of Living Labs is facilitate)
- Innovation Outcomes (e.g. Protection of Lives is the main objective, so following the Open Community Approach, risk mitigation content, knowledge and patents, should be freely used adapted to the benefit of all United Nations Member States, commercial interest should have be labelled transparently as commercial)
- Methods & Tools (e.g. successful tools and method should be published under a free licence so that other UN member states can use, adapt and redistribute the method and tools without commercial requirements and constraints especially for developing countries)
