Data is used to shape health behaviors, societal thinking, and innovative technologies. Sensitive information such as sexual health data still facilitates the same vital roles. In this talk, Mr. Tanaka Chanduka will discuss the use of sexual health data, its importance, and the opportunities present when working with sexual, ethnic, and racial minorities from three digital studies. I will also describe the need for engaging racial and sexual minorities in research and the impact it has on informing sexual wellness and data equity.
