Nathan Georgette, Helping people fight HIV and TB with simple text messages

Date grant awarded: 06/03/2017

Treatment for HIV is lifelong, and many people have trouble keeping up with it. At Sawubona Health, we work with clinics to use encouraging text messages to help people stick with their treatment. Right now, we collaborate with clinics in the KwaZulu-Natal region of South Africa, which is the hardest hit area by HIV and TB. We are proud that we proved our approach to be effective at our first partner clinic, and will use the Pollination Project’s generous contribution to expand the services to even more patients and ensure that they continue to take their medicine.
