The Red Card

Summer 2011, she designed preliminary prototypes of the red card that includes a novel text messaging service developed by Rensselaer science and technology studies graduate student and NSF Triple Helix Fellow David Banks who is studying cellphone usage in Ghana. Read more about the technical development of the cellphone service for HIV/AIDS prevention in Ghana via John Licato’s blog. John Licato is a computer science student hired to do the technical research and programming of the cellphone service. The red card helps Ghanaians find out where to get condoms in Kumasi and where to get HIV tested in Kumasi. Tell us about a condom provider or HIV testing facility in Kumasi or the Ashanti Region.

    The graphic design concept of Adinkra symbols make it very fit for the Ghanaian culture.
