Wits Reproductive Health & HIV Institute

USAID and the Vodacom Foundation are funding a consortium of implementing partners (Wits Reproductive Health Institute, Cell-Life, Praekelt Foundation, and Geo-med) to provide HIV/AIDS services using mobile communications technology. Over a three-year period, this information, community, and technology (ICT) for HIV/AIDS program will use mobile technology to support the South African Government's response to HIV/AIDS.
