According to the Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs, over 50% of Korean adults in their 20’s did not practice use of contraception, and as a result various issues occur such as single parenthood, adoption and abortion. Regular practice of using contraception for those unmarried and in their 20’s is recognized as shameful, especially for women. Therefore, this app proposes to provide actual and accurate ‘need-to-know’ information on contraception conveniently, regardless of gender, without the user feeling shameful when receiving contraception information. The ME, U app delivers information through stories, shares experiences by utilizing anonymous bulletin boards, and provides expert counselling to enable the users to not be shameful of easy access and consensus regarding contraception.
Earl Gee— "This solution is commendable for addressing a sensitive and complex issue in a graphic, metaphorical manner—breaking down barriers to understanding."
