e-condom: Electronic Reproductive Health Solutions?

Intelligent devices designed to help mankind in decision-making and support has been a counter intuitive subject for long in self-care and in general healthcare. We all know how much our lives have been improved by technology and how much the healthcare industry has been boosted by science and technology.

Designing is not a definitive answer to questions of health and wellness, but rather the scientific integrations of the state-of-the-art designs with human behavior.
My clinical practice in the area of reproductive health and knowledge in human sexual behavior doesn’t not seem to blend clearly on how to address unwanted pregnancies; is it the lack of efficaciousness of contraception methods or the lack of alertness when the impending technology is about to “go burst ”

Would I not be happy to know when my food stock will not be usable so I can plan what to cook out of my fridge? Yes, and the technology is already out there! You can even tell on how long a given perishable product will last in your stock, amount of calorie on our food item and of recent science being engineered..........

MobileHealth: Healthcare Getting More Portable for Developing World?

HealthApps and
 hospital workflow
Much that the mobile phone industry has caught attention of many  investors to think of  the developing world as a potential market,  the health sector sees this as a golden bullet to healthcare solutions especially in developing world. Mobile phone apps that could help in clinical decision support, data collection and sharing or  mobile-phone-sized and technology compatible gadgets that could be carried and synched on GSM, CDMA technologies widely available now in these countries are a promising solution.

A recent study has shown that there will be 1.4 billion people with smartphones worldwide by 2015, and 500 million of them will be using mobile health applications, (research2guidance).  Smartphones will be the catalyst to bring mobile healthcare (R2G).  Though the huge numbers of smart-phones are  in developed world, as compared to the emerging market, the solutions that the same applications can play are immense in the later especially in the rate at which the technology is now used and widely adopted. 

Its to my view that the right market for healthcare investments in Africa should target this market. While most of the hospital equipments have been huge, expensive and almost imposible to deploy newer innovations like Mobisante's Smartphone-based ultrasound gives a promise to healthcare systems in developing world. 
This gadget, a size of a mobile phone project to  cost USD 5,000-10,000 at its initial price is awaiting regulatory approvals is likely to be affordable to remote hospitals and would save more lives.

Healthcare solutions models that will be cheap to acquire, easy to deploy, aren't energy intensive or can exploit rapidly expanding mobile phone technologies offer an easy and clear way to healthcare delivery and access.

Its a matter of time before systems geared into exploiting this model will be deployed in Africa to solve our impending problems.

HIV and ARV: My paper in the "European Journal of Medical Research"

Prevalence and spectrum of opportunistic infections in HIV-infected patients

Health IT: Data and Sample Ownership in a Research Study,

Who owns research samples after they are obtained?
My views on Clinical Informatics Ethics:- Havasupai Medical Genetics study.
The research group can hardly own sample in a research that involves biospacimen that can be traced back to the owner. This fact I think, sets boundaries to what should define the relationship of each part in the study; a researcher meant to answer the research question and the subject willingly and knowingly consents to be a source of such information.
 These samples though they are known as body “parts” of the subject as blood and tissue, they carry more than the names attached to them; the blueprint “DNA” of the subject who is unique and distinct from any other beings. In this case I would think the fact that "no any human can own other human whole or in part" thence no consent should transfer human being ownership.

-Lets agree among ourselves- It is not fun being black in this world..Response

My linguistic expertise might be the lowest of all the contributors on this topic yet the two words ashamed and embarrassed are merely synonymous..!

I wish you were neither embarrassed nor ashamed for one of these is the mother of the other at times but most of times these are Siamese twins and i can assure you they are inseparable,

One of my former teachers once said "If God gave you a lemon for a gift, make lemonade out of it" I can see being black is a God given lemon-gift to you, make a juicy man!
In-case being black makes you embarrassed/ashamed just use it as an asset; I can assure you there are lots lemonade thirsty people out there for a black-lemon-made-drink. We have lots of things to offer not only the acidic taste and the wrinkled peel the western media portrays.
