Launch National AIDS Helpline Mobile Instant Messaging service
Today will be the launch of our hard labour over the past few weeks providing National AIDS Helpline with the technology to offer mobile counselling service to thousands accross South Africa. Why this is such wodnerful opportunity? Interesting facts about South Africa:
1. Highest number of HIV+ people in the world
2. Most unequal countries in the world
3. Best technical infrastructure in Africa, especially cellphones
"Massive potential to use cellphones to provide communication & info services to millions infected or affected by HIV"
We salute the world's first HIV/AIDS Mobile Counsellors as we looking forward seeing how communities will be reconstructed through the use of technology.
National AIDS Helpline counsellors are available Mondays to Thursdays 3-5pm. Add the contact firstname.lastname@example.org (Jabber) or redchatzone (Google Talk) and nickname: Red Chat Zone.
