Title Towards Teaching Maternal Healthcare and Nutrition in Rural Ethiopia through a Serious Game
Author Font, Jose M ; Hedvall, Alexander ; Svensson, Emil
Date 2017
English abstract
Ethiopia has one of the highest maternal and child mortality rates in the world, partly due to the low accessibility of educational content regarding nutrition and healthcare in the rural regions. This paper presents the first step for tackling this problem by means of a serious game, Easycare, designed for teaching illiterate users, with almost no previous experience with digital games, good practices for healthcare and nutrition. Promising results from a field study conducted in Ethiopia are also presented, showing the potential of the tool for education in developing countries.
