This paper identifies the value and challenges in introducing rapid prototyping of policy to design non-expert and expert groups by analysing an online workshop series that was conducted with early-career professionals, policy makers, and design researchers. The COVID-19 pandemic evidenced, even more, the need for situated policies in the area of health as global health policies were ineffective in addressing livelihood diversity, particularly of underserved communities. Therefore, the untapped potential of rapid prototyping for policy making in the area of global health is explored. We particularly analyse the creativity of the different groups who joined the workshop series and point out implications for the rapid prototype of situated global health policies in international low-resourceful settings.
