RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Fiocruz (Oswaldo Cruz Foundation) has developed an App to map the areas of the country regarded as the most violent for the LGBT population. Users will point out whether areas are safe or not.
The goal is to reduce the number of attacks recorded, mainly at night, on the country's streets and avenues.
The tool will also feature a panic button. When triggered, it will send an automatic distress message to five trusted people registered by the victim.
The support group will also receive the location of the incident, State Police phones, city rescue services . . .
