"New Media Technologies in HIV/AIDS Organisations in Cape Town, South Africa"

Presenter(s): Geerte van Beek

Venue: CSSR R429 Leslie Social Science Building

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.
