There is a high number of unwanted pregnancies linked to taboos on sexuality and problems of access to adequate contraception. These unwanted pregnancies, most of which are early, have as their main effect a high morbidity rate among young girls. They also very regularly lead to difficulties in family cohesion and thus in socio-professional integration.
My Virtual Planning advises young people to adopt responsible sexual behaviour in order to avoid unwanted pregnancies and Sexually Transmitted Diseases. My Virtual Planning informs young people about sexuality in general, including sexual and reproductive health, mutual respect, consent and contraceptive methods, through their mobile phones, whether or not they are connected to the Internet. Their main communication channels are their Facebook page and their mobile application.
