© 2018 IEEE. Currently, the community of deaf women must face lack of several resources related to their personal and professional development: (i) the lack of bilingualism (sign language and written language), (ii) the lack of an appropriate knowledge about local sign language, and (iii) the scarcity of educational plans about of Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH). This situation triggers several problems such as transmission of sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancy in adolescence, sexual violence, and complications during pregnancy. For these reasons, in this paper, we present an ecosystem and an educational methodology aimed on improving the access to SRH programs as well complementing the engineering academic curriculum. Our proposal was put to test with 3 (deaf) human experts of the Federation of the Deaf of Azuay. The results are encouraging and have shown that it is necessary to implement educational programs in universities and colleges.
