There are some arenas in which developing countries have not followed the typical sequence of technology development. Take cell-phones for example. Instead of perpetuating the use of land-lines, some countries have jumped into cell-phone technology with cell-phones being a more common thing to find in someone’s hand than a Rwandan cup of coffee. Motorbikes are another example and are quite the rage here. It seems that people haven given up on traditional bikes and are either walking along side the road or hopping on the back of a moto to get to the pharmacie or papelerie. With the internet, countries can leap frog old school mail for communication. So, what is the jump in technology for sanitary pads? We’re ready for your suggestions!
