Blurb/Shorttext:
Technology has become a powerful tool for resolving societal health problems especially those associated with women. Advances in the miniaturization and portability of diagnostic technologies, information technologies and long distance care have increased the viability of healthcare technologies. As these health technologies become increasingly complex, women tend to harbour anxieties also known as "technophobia" in relating to their use of these health technologies. Females experiencing technophobia stay away from most modern technologies ranging from point-of-care health technologies, communication gadgets to more complex computer related health technologies. This book explored the incidence of technophobia and its impact on women's use of health technologies. The findings of the study indicate that technophobia exists amongst women in Nigeria and it impacts their use of more sophisticated health technologies. The findings also provide insight into the sociocultural and socioeconomic factors that drive technophobia and influence the use of health technologies.
