One of the most pressing challenges in developing nations is the underused access to sexual diagnosis due to a lack of privacy, social instability, and social stigma governing sexual behavior. As a result, Cumasu is working on a mobile platform acting as a chat box receiving real-time appointment requests with clinics via SMS for discretion, while using the technology to aid clinics to be more data-driven in their approach to care and educate for HIV/AIDS and STIs.
“..the struggle to end sexist oppression that focuses on destroying the cultural basis for such domination strengthens other liberation struggles. Individuals who fight for the eradication of sexism without struggles to end racism or classism undermine their own efforts. Individuals who fight for the eradication of racism or classism while supporting sexist oppression are helping to maintain the cultural basis of all forms of group oppression.”
