What is Hen World?
Hen World is the brainchild of the Nijkerk Group, a Singapore-based company created to address various frustrations in the medical ecosystem through an animated character named Dr. Hen.
Among the purposes of this particular project is that everyone can have more control and knowledge about their health, keeping as an input the publication of informative and awareness material.
The Dr. Hen character aims at inclusion, sharing plural information in a simple and non-intimidating way.
Hen World has developed a very simple strategy, elaborating graphic material in the style of comics, they pose situations related to particular conditions and health problems to make visible the growing misinformation that exists.
Currently, their accounts on social networks such as Instagram and Twitter have a large number of active followers, and they recently decided to take the big step of entering the Decentraland metaverse.
