"Design research provided valuable insights in terms of developing a framework for video adaptation across settings, which other interventionists and scholars can use to guide adaptations of similar interventions."

Culturally grounded, mobile health (mHealth) video interventions have had positive effects in diverse settings. Variations in terms of the meaning that individuals across cultures derive from a given message can however occur, even in seemingly straightforward formats.
