UGANDAN STUDENTS CREATE VAGINAL INFECTION DETECTION APP

 A group of students of Uganda’s Makerere University have created a mobile app that detects vaginal bacteria

Team Code Gurus, a team of Ugandan students, has created an app that detects vaginal bacteria.

The app, coupled with the a test kit known as a Her Health BVkit, takes readings from urinal/vaginal samples and transmits data for diagnosis, CCTV-AFRICA reported. After receiving the data, the mobile app reads the pH levels, analyses the amount of healthy versus unhealthy bacteria, and offers a recommendation of whether the user is healthy or should seek medical attention.

The app also uses health information from a nearby hospital to yield information about vaginal infections and preventative measures.

Bacterial vaginosis is an abnormal vaginal condition that is characterised by vaginal discharge and results from an overgrowth of atypical bacteria in the vagina.
