Care for the Carer System (C4C System)

C4C is a mobile based system developed to support Health Care Workers (HCW) with the objective of providing a reporting platform for occupational exposure incidents, tracking non-HIV conditions & creating scheduler for HCWs to increase antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence and follow up. The mobile technology system will enable HCWs to register into the platform, report exposures and receive adherence messaging. The platform will provide a monitoring process that will follow the HCW until they complete the post exposure prophylaxes and testing up to the sixth month unless they opt out of the platform. Upon downloading of the C4C system, a user is allowed to create a personal account with a personalized password. Even though personal information including name, phone number and Identification number is collected during registration, basically for purposes of ensuring HCWs are not registered more than once, during reporting of an exposure a HCW is not expected to provide this information again and in aggregating exposures the personal identification information is not attached to the exposures reported. After proof of the C4C concept, it is expected that the system will be taken over, owned, implemented and managed by the Ministry of Health with support from Infection Prevention and Control Service delivery partners while mHealth Kenya can continue to provide technical support.

Goal

To improve reporting of injuries as well as increase uptake of, and adherence to PEP therapy among HWs in Kenya.

Text for Adherence System (T4A System)/ USHAURI

ART adherence is only one of many modifiable health behaviors that can be targeted through the use of mobile phones. T4A/USHAURI mobile platform has been developed with the objective of improving the health outcomes of the PLHIV by providing timely and reliable messages including appointment reminder messages, treatment adherence messages and wellness messages. At facility level, patient data are entered using a facility based tablet/lap top/or computer that is password protected and under the control of one designated individual at the facility (adherence nurse and/or counselor or data person). Access credentials are limited based on the level of the user. T4A/USHAURI Messages are coded using simple words such as “How RU?-Uko aje?” and the patient is expected to respond using simple words “Fine-Niko poa”.

Goal:

Implement mobile technology in 100% of ART clinics in PEPFAR focused counties to facilitate ART adherence, care and treatment while contributing to the UNAIDS of 90-90-90

M-punda System

M-punda is a mobile and web application which allows donkey owners and the public to acquire information about donkey care. In addition the Donkey owner has access to Veterinary service providers and Agro vet shops.  The application is offered by Brooke E.A and through their partners.

Goal

Provide a platform where Donkey owners have access to information on donkey care, Veterinary service providers and Agro vet shops.

Text for Life System (T4L System)

The objective of the Text for Life (T4L) project is to facilitate communication with donors through phone short message texting service (SMS) with the purpose of mobilizing donors to increase blood donations, increase repeat donations response to emergency blood appeals and return for test results. The system also enables the Kenyan National Blood Transfusion Services to receive blood stock information from the regional blood centers and satellites through a mobile platform. It is anticipated that an increase in blood donations will increase the HIV testing and possible linkage to care and treatment to those identified as HIV positive.

Goal

Scale-up and improve system functionality to counties and facility levels by creating public awareness for extended use.

Description

mPEP System

Mobile application using SMS that helps health care works (HCW) report occupational injuries that would potentially expose them to HIV and other infectious disease. Upon the uptake of Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) treatments, the system would send them reminders and help in increasing uptake and thus increase adherence and maintain PEP compliance.

Goal

Increase national coverage and improve system functionality so as to be used by the public to report injuries
