Evidence in Action Board Game
The board game, which is similar to Snakes and Ladders, was developed as part of the World Health Organization evidence-based reproductive health care training package. It is an innovative and creative method, which enables participants to put into action the knowledge gained from a preceding training workshop. It can also be used as a stand-alone learning tool. The game was developed with a rural setting in mind, highlighting some of the logistical and health-related problems encountered in under-resourced countries.
