  • The new $ 10 million "Phones-for-Health" project plan has been announced in Africa to fight against HIV/AIDS . This new software will be loaded on to a standard Motorola handset which will allow field care workers to enter the health problems in the central database without losing anytime . Than this databse will be transmitted using a standard GPRS mobile service and if GPRS is not available than via SMS channels .

    Right now also in Africa pen and paper is used to record the spread of disease . But more than 60% of Africans now live in areas with mobile coverage and it has figured that by 2010 85% areas would b in GPRS coverage . This scheme build on the success of Pilot mission which took place in Rwanda and will focus on the problems of HIV/AIDS in 10 African countries .South Africa's MTN is the operator partner in this program .

    I hope so that this will work nicely in Africa because they need this technology according to the growing HIV/AIDS ratio over there .
