According to USAID, 17,000 girls acquire new HIV infections each year and current educational methods are insufficient. Our team will use games to educate males partners, age 15-24 years, and generate data about their behavior preferences.
Profile Category: Completed Project
As an innovator, I want to use TanzMED and open data to increase the supply, usage and sharing of health information to achieve several goals: increase male partner participation in creating a safe environment for AGYW; prevent AGYW against risks of getting HIV/AIDS and other STDs; and create new sources of income and employment for local health workers.
As a learning organization, we want to leverage our edutainment and relevant data about education and economics to improve adolescent girls’ economic empowerment, and increase their security, agency and self-efficacy.
As an animator and game developer, I want to bridge the gap between entertainment and data by harnessing the power of mobile games in the fight against HIV/AIDS among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW). My game will encourage AGYW to make the right decisions in life and pursue their endeavors.
My team wants to use a desktop application to aggregate truancy data sets so that we can reduce school dropout rates, and ultimately the risk of contracting HIV/AIDS among AGYW.
I'm a Dodoma University student and CEO of Bwilotech Co. Ltd. I know the pain of dropping out of school, so I make innovative tools to protect current students from the consequences of dropping out. As a software developer and young entrepreneur, I want to use both data technology (DT) and information technology (IT) to stimulate parents’ involvement in their children’s education. My goal is to reduce truancy and school dropout rates among Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW).
As a data scientist, I want to combine geographic information with open data sets to map public health resources and diseases in relation to their environment so that we can improve healthcare surveillance.
As someone who had trouble finding the right specialist for a health problem, I want to use SMS mobile technology to link health experts (doctors and specialists) to people who need care, especially in the rural areas, so that Tanzanians can connect with the health services they need quickly and easily.
As a medical doctor by training, I want to use mobile technology to increase the accessibility of information that is available in the online Health Facility Registry so that patients can enquire by SMS about the types of services offered in nearby health facilities and make decisions about the best place to go for care.
As a community activist, I want to use data to develop a Menstruation Period Management (MPM) toolkit to educate girls, parents, and teachers so that we can encourage open conversations around MPM and help them understand that menstruation period for a woman is a prestige; it’s not a curse. The goal is to eventually keep young women and girls in school by lowering absenteeism caused by MPM.
