A Software Platform to Improve Safety and Utilization of Sanitation and Water Source Facilities Among Women in South African Informal Settlements

To develop a software platform (accessible through text messaging and a mobile application) for women in informal settlements to report and receive real time information in cases where accessing public latrines and water sources may be a risk to their safety. The information will then be linked to service providers and community leaders to increase efficiency of maintenance of facilities and ensure they are safe for women and children to use.
