Abstract / Description:
The focus of this discussion will be on mHealth (the use of mobile technology for health interventions) interventions. I first want to discuss the main HIV-related problems in the Western Cape area. After this, I discuss how mHealth is able to deal with these problems. Since I did part of my research at Cell-Life (an innovative eHealth - electronic health - organization in Cape Town) I use examples of their projects to clarify my story.
