The initiative’s aim is to help reduce mother and infant mortality through improved access to treatment, as well as reducing the number of People Living with HIV (PLHIV) dropping out of treatment by providing accessible treatment and targeted health information.
The solution places a greater emphasis on the community in delivering treatments, monitoring patients within the community and their help to deliver awareness-raising messages and reminders using mobile telecommunications. In short, the community’s role has been consolidated, unlike in the traditional healthcare system where only healthcare professionals perform this role.
