2. MyPaddi :
Mypaddi is an App aimed at connecting young people with medical personnel who can help them clarify their sexual and reproductive health concerns as well as general health concerns. Mypaddi helps them chat with a doctor or healthcare personnel.
Mypaddi which in Nigeria means “my close friend”, provides young people with the trust that they need to open up without fear to their doctors who give them access to accurate, unbiased, and youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health information, it provides these through complete anonymity.
Patients and doctors on the app have anonymous profiles, therefore the identity of the patient and doctor is unknown. This is to encourage youths to share their problems and experiences without fear.
In our Nigerian society, topics related to sexual and reproductive health have seemed to be kept hidden from young people because the older generation see them as pervasive to be shared with young people and would rather have them live in ignorance about it. This has made young people silent about their concerns but with the Mypaddi app, young people can be open about their questions and get the adequate answers they need while protecting their identity.
