By Daniels Ekugo
JAMA, a network with mobile application that brings together specialty journals to offer enhanced anytime, anywhere access to research, reviews and perspectives shaping the future of medicine, has shown in a recent wellness survey conducted in Nigeria that more males have been sexually assaulted than females.
The survey of almost 1,000 males and females between the ages of 16- 60 years old living across Nigeria revealed that 59 percent of Males have had parts of their bodies touched without permission or received inappropriate sexual messages or images electronically, versus 51percent of women.
The data gathering solution uses the power of 70 million mobile phones in Nigeria to deliver real-time business insights, whilst providing a platform for participants (Jammers) to earn redeemable rewards.
The online platform has a JN mobile application which is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play store. This allows you to get answers to medical questions in real time as you work through each case, deciding what you would do next. Based on studies from JAMA, JAMA Dermatology, JAMA Surgery, and JAMA Ophthalmology, the app allows you to improve your score by allowing you to review the questions you missed.
According to the wellness survey carried out in Nigeria, the likelihood of sexual assault taking place in private residences and public premises (e.g. offices, schools etc) is 19 percent higher than at nightclubs and other social venues, where it is generally perceived to be more prevalent.
