Canada: Mobile App a High-Tech Approach to Teaching Safe Sex

April 4, 2014

This article was reported by CBC News Saskatoon.

CBC News Saskatoon reported that a new smartphone application called Keep It Safe, created by the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute, will launch later this month in an effort to get safe sex messages out to youth in the Saskatchewan Province of Canada. The mobile application will include safe sex information and will assist teens in finding free condoms. According to the Institute's Jackie Eaton, statistics for STDs and HIV in the province are high, as are unplanned pregnancies among adolescents, making the information offered by the application valuable. Keep It Safe will be promoted in high schools across Saskatchewan.
