SMS Credits for Healthcare
Help provide access to medical care by purchasing SMS credits that will be donated to AIDS patients in South Africa.
There are millions of people in South Africa struggling to survive with HIV/AIDS. For many the greatest hurdle is to establish their status with a doctor and to maintain medical treatment to stay alive. Despite the extreme poverty, a large percentage of the population have a cellphone as their one form of communication. Docvia allows that cell phone to become a lifeline, by creating a secure text message interface for doctors and patients to communicate sensitive information and maintain treatment. For patients of the PHRU, an HIV/AIDS research unit at a hospital in Soweto, South Africa who’s focus is to prevent pregnant mothers from transmitting the virus to their child, a text message will help them to maintain a treatment regimen that could save the life of their child.
Through TakeTheWalk.net you can purchase SMS text message credits to be donated to pregnant mothers in Soweto, making it free for them to access their doctor.
Docvia is a for profit healthcare technology company based in the US, that donates it’s technology to healthcare facilities in need, in developing nations.
