Airtel and UNAIDS join forces to use ICT in the fight against AIDS


Telecommunications company Airtel Malawi and the United Nations Fund for AIDS (UNAIDS) signed a memorandum of understanding yesterday, October 1, 2014 relates to the use of mobile applications that would reduce the impact of HIV / AIDS among communities.

Heiko Schlittke, the CEO of Airtel Malawi explained that the role of business is to make available to people free short number.

Amakobe Sande, the country director of UNAIDS said that through this number, people can share their experiences, get information about the disease or tips to avoid aggravating their situation.

UNAIDS was motivated in partnership with Airtel by overload patients of all kinds experienced by hospitals and health centers in the country. This overhead reduces the time care and attention given to AIDS patients. Deprived of a number of long-term information, they may adopt risky behaviors that jeopardize their surroundings.
