We assembled a dedicated team of Physicians, Game Developers, Community Health Specialists, and support staff at Quinnipiac University, UCLA, and JSS Medical and Engineering Colleges in Mysore India to work on this project. The Game Design Collaborative at Quinnipiac University developed the My Future Family game which we deployed with JSS MVP throughout their urban and rural schools in Karnataka, India in August of 2017. Our results are published on Gates Open Research. In summer of 2018, we deployed a revised version of the game in Chennai, Tamil Nadu with clinicians at the Sundaram Medical Foundation. Planning is underway for another deployment in Tanzania in 2019. We are seeking additional funding to deploy a new version of the game that includes birth control methods.
