Empowering Change Through Community Driven Innovation

 

 

What We Do

 

Ward Infinity aims to radically reduce health disparities through the creation of community-driven solutions. We partner with change agents in Washington, D.C.'s most underserved communities, Wards 7 and 8, to develop innovative solutions that address social determinants of health.

 
 

Our Goals

Eliminate Disparities

Health disparities increase medical costs by $77 billion and indirect costs by $83 billion each year. Our strategy distributes resources to increase health and vitality and reduce costs.

Increase Inclusion

Vulnerable communities are often not consulted on changes that affect their quality of life. Our approach empowers residents to shape changes in their community.

Build Trust

As we've seen with the COVID vaccine roll-out, trust between patients & providers either impedes or encourages healthcare service use. Our process listens and responds to community needs.

The Sibley Innovation Method

Triad illustration

Our social innovation method prescribes a process, not an outcome. It combines our very own human-centered design approach Listen Imagine Do with public health and business problem-solving methods to generate community-driven innovations. The goal of the process is to design solutions that resonate with community needs and values all while having a viable underlying business model.
