About the project

According to the 2017-2022 PNDS (National Diagnosis and Treatment Protocol), the health problems affecting young people and adolescents are mainly sexual and reproductive health problems, including STIs and HIV. In this age group, there is an early pregnancy rate of 17%. Moreover, according to the EDST III (Demographic and Health Survey in Togo), 40% of pregnant women did not complete the 4 antenatal consultations and for 39% of pregnant women, they were not assisted by qualified health personnel during labour. All of these problems appear to be related to a lack of information and the persistence of risk behaviours among young people and adolescents. eConvivial therefore proposes to use ICTs to facilitate access to health information.
eCentre Convivial aims to provide the population with access to Sexual and Reproductive Health information and services. It is based on a web and mobile application to improve the daily well-being of young women of childbearing age, pregnant women and their infants. Throughout the entire Togo health system, there are many great applications but there is no application specifically designed to monitor the health of the population. This fundamental difference from existing solutions is recognised by partners such as the Ministry of Health, UNDP and the Global Fund as an innovative eHealth solution.
