U.N., Kenyan Firm Urge Entrepreneurs To Develop Sex Education Tools Using Technology, Social Media

Thomson Reuters Foundation: Kenya seeks tech alternatives to break taboo over sex education in schools
“…Teenagers across Africa urgently need more information about sex to combat soaring rates of HIV and unwanted pregnancies, experts say, as widespread taboos and cultural conservatism prevent discussions in schools and homes. … The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Nailab, a Kenyan firm that supports technology startups, are behind the latest initiative, which targets entrepreneurs for their ideas on providing sex education through technology and social media…” (Wadekar, 7/4).
