We have good news, finally, after a couple of months of working on a project for the amazing team at Education as a Vaccine a non-profit organization, we are happy to announce that an updated version of the linkup app is on the app store, you can go and download it here.

Young people are constantly faced with situations where they have to make life-changing decisions about their sexual and reproductive health (SRH), yet a majority of adolescents and young people lack access to the information and services required to make those decisions, leaving them vulnerable to coercion, sexual violence, sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancies.

So with funding from her partners, EVA came up with the idea to build a Youth-Friendly Services Finder App- Link Up, they reached out to our team at Endgame The Strategy Company to build this app.

And we delivered, the app connects users to youth-friendly health facilities closest to them, the app enables them to speak to trained counsellors on issues surrounding their Sexual Reproductive Health.

The key idea behind the updated version is simplicity and improved user-friendliness”.

  • Users can find youth-friendly healthcare services centres by location and by the services they provide.
  • The app also allows users to speak to trained counsellors on issues surrounding their SRH remotely.
  • Users can also rate facilities/service providers. This puts them in control to be actively involved in the improvement of the quality of services rendered and received by them. Hence they are not just passive users but active contributors to the quality of services rendered at these health facilities.

Linkup app was developed to encourage the information-seeking behaviour among young people, while providing access to accurate and non-judgmental responses to SRHR issues to reduce high-risk behaviours that may lead to HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancies and complications from unsafe abortion.

It was a privilege for us to be entrusted with the task of developing this app for the team at EVA, The Linkup app is one amongst many others to come, the ultimate goal for the app by EVA is to leverage technology in their bid to achieve their mission to improve the health and development of children, adolescents, and young people.
