Presentation: Intersexions: The Story of Social Media Revolution

Intersexions: The Story of a Social Media Revolution
Ruth Teer-Tomaselli
University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Intersexions is a 26-part South African television drama series. Its development was informed by the recognition that South Africa has a large HIV and AIDS burden, driven largely by multiple sexual partnerships, intergenerational sex and low condom use.

This presentation examines how the series rose above the competing programming to give South Africans a drama that was not overtly about HIV while addressing the key drivers and how Facebook provided valuable real-time continuous feedback and influenced the ending episode of the series.

Presentation: Mobitainment: Health Education Via Mobile Tech

In India a major portion of the population resides in remote rural areas which lack accessibility to basic health services. Accessibility also is hindered by a poor awareness level and lack of knowledge. This study examines mobile phone technology as a means to penetrate rural areas and generate awareness of health care availability among rural women in a district of India. The paper identifies the potential benefit of mobile technology, particularly regarding women's health and as an effective entertainment-education strategy to promote health awareness.
