Sophie Bot, Kenya
Talking about sexual health is not only awkward, but also taboo. Without the right information on sexual health, people make ill-informed decisions which are a contributing factor to the high prevalence of STIs, early pregnancies, and unsafe abortions in Kenya. Sophie Bot is an artificial intelligence persona that answers questions about sexual health. Analogous to a virtual assistant for sexual health, she provides private, curated, and verified information from UNFPA Kenya and the National AIDS Control Council.
