Ugandan Students Create A Vaginal Infection Detection App

A team of Ugandan students have created an app that detects vaginal bacteria. The app takes readings from urinal/vaginal samples and transmits data for diagnosis and it comes with a test kit known as a Her Health BVkit.

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.

Team Code Gurus which came up with the app consists of three young women namely Ndagire Esther, Nanyombi Maghi and Bridget Mendoza. 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 characterized by vaginal discharge and results from an overgrowth of atypical bacteria in the vagina. If not treated it can cause other conditions like cervical cancer, PID and even premature birth.
