HERNANDEZ TORRES, José Luis; BENAVIDES TORRES, Raquel Alicia; GONZALEZ Y GONZALEZ, Víctor  y  ONOFRE RODRIGUEZ, Dora Julia. Mobile Prototype for the Promotion of Condom Use in Mexican Youth: a Case Study. RCIM [online]. 2019, vol.11, n.2, pp.65-79.  Epub 01-Dic-2019. ISSN 1684-1859.

Mobile applications have been used to promote the use of condoms, but those have no theoretical basis and do not consider the opinion of users in their development, which is why they have been evaluated negatively. The objective was to develop and evaluate a mobile application to promote the correct and consistent use of the condom in youth at risk of HIV, based on a user-centered design thinking approach. Using qualitative methodology, three phases were carried out. In the first phase, inspiration, the needs of 9 young people were identified with respect to the use of the prototype. In the second phase, ideation, these needs were transformed into solutions and validated in 15 youths. In the third phase, implementation, a usability test was conducted on other 15 youths. In conclusion, this approach offered a practical solution for the development of a mobile prototype to encourage the use of condoms in young people.
