Oky is the first-of-its-kind open-source mobile phone period tracker and menstruation education application co-created with and for girls in Low- and Middle-Income Countries. Oky illustrates innovative tech design that tackles the taboo, stigma, misconceptions/ harmful practices, and lack of quality information related to menstruation and Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) for girls. Oky was built together with girls to meet their digital realities (connectivity, devices, literacy, gatekeepers) and increase girls’ digital literacy while learning about their bodies, puberty, and reproductive health.
Indonesia was one of the initial pilot countries for Oky which was developed with girls across Indonesia using extensive user consultations and girl-centered design approaches. The Indonesia Oky app version was launched in May 2020, during the Covid-19 situation, with the theme “periods don’t stop for pandemics,” by UNICEF and partners, in conjunction with a series of educational events and a social media campaign.
Indonesia has promoted using digital and in-person marketing activities, including the Menstrual Hygiene Day campaign by the Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC), Government of Indonesia. UNICEF Indonesia also hosted webinars and competitions for adolescents, talk shows with medical doctors and social media health influencers on Instagram Live, and webinars collaborating with social media influencers, Softex and Indonesian Red Cross, Chapter East Nusa Tenggara Province.
Starting April 2021, the Oky Indonesia app is being hosted and maintained by the Kopernik Foundation and its social enterprise named The Perfect Fit with support from SIMAVI, UNICEF, and the Indonesia Menstrual Hygiene Health (MHH) WASH partnership.
Over the next 2 years, UNICEF, Perfect Fit and partners will collaborate to promote Oky uptake across the Indonesian, with a focus on reaching marginalized girls in remote, under-served areas. The strategies being considered include digital marketing promotion, in-person promotion in schools and via health services, inclusion of Oky content in digital teacher training package, and peer-to-peer methodology.
