Young people in Democratic Republic of Congo are turning to their phones to consult “Doctor Love” - not a matchmaker but a mobile app that answers questions about sex and childbirth. The service is much needed in the central African country where many people lack basic information about contraceptives and the rate of teenage pregnancy is high, according to its founder Aime Lokulutu, a doctor in the capital Kinshasa.
