The Wisconsin Planned Parenthood affiliate knows it isn’t always easy to make sexual health a priority – especially if you have limited resources. So their “No Condom, No Way” program has created a quick and simple solution.
By texting NCNW to 69866, Wisconsin residents can get the nearest free condom location sent straight to their phone. The service works by asking users to text in their zip codes, which are automatically checked against an existing database of free condom distribution locations. That means that it only takes a few minutes for anyone in Wisconsin to find free condoms at a convenient place.
Condoms aren’t the only thing your cell phone can help you find. Check out the California Department of Public Health’s vaccine finder for another great idea of how to use mobile to help people find services in their own backyards.
