About the Organization

ChildFund International in India has been working with underprivileged children, youth and families from the most remote, extremely backward and hard-to-reach areas in India, with a vision of “an India where children lead a dignified life and achieve their full potential”. ChildFund’ s unique programs provide comprehensive support to children from their conception until they reach 24 years of age by integrating health, nutrition, sanitation, education, skill training, livelihoods, child protection and humanitarian relief work. ChildFund in India annually reaches millions of children, youth, and their families across 14 States through its long-term programs. ChildFund’ s unparalleled longstanding community presence and long-term partnership with grassroot NGOs enables effective implementation of its programs. The organisation works with communities, state and national government bodies, academic institutions, media, funding agencies and corporates to strengthen child protection systems in order to prevent violence against children and protect them from abuse, neglect and harm.

About the Proposal

Sexual health education programs can provide information and support to improve knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours related to sexual and reproductive health. Research findings indicate adolescents prioritize confidentiality and accessibility over medical accuracy, two factors that are not likely to be present in a clinical environment that frequently demands parental involvement. There are studies that demonstrate how health technology tools are acceptable to teens and may be the preferred mode of sexual health education.

Mobile health (mHealth)-based sexual education has the potential to facilitate the delivery of comprehensive sexual education that is culturally relevant and easily accessible – both of which are key facets to improving sexual health-related outcomes among adolescent women in India.

As the need to provide more comprehensive sexual education to adolescents grows, new platforms have arisen that have been shown to be efficient and accurate modes of information. One such avenue is the rise of technology-based interventions alternatively referred to as electronic health, mHealth, or digital media; these programs tend to centre around technology such as computers, smartphones, or text messaging .Unlike more traditional, formal sexual education approaches, incorporating more technology-based interventions could allow for larger impacts as a result of larger audiences at a relatively low cost, increased privacy for teens, and more flexibility in tailoring messages toward specific populations .As technology becomes a dominant factor in adolescent lives, it is imperative to consider the use of new media in the realm of sexual health education
