  • Here is a health worker retrieving EID results on her phone and writing them down into the DBS register
  • 3 labs serve the entire country and the transport cycle of EID is a serious problem,
  • The system address the last two parts of the results delivery cycle. These times are much more severe in rural areas, as long as 6 months in some cases.
  • So what do the actual messages look like that are being sent back and forth?
  • The system reminds the RemindMi Agent of a necessary post-natal visit at six days, six weeks, and six months
  • The key point here is that there was a much larger volume of results that arrived by SMS rather than by Hard Copy. This trend greatly affected the rural facilities more than the urban ones.
  • Level of magnification: topAs the key beneficiaries of Project Mwana, all clinics have threestakeholders providing primary support on an ongoing basis. Two provide immediate support and one provides back-up support. All support teams should have guides outlining roles and responsibilities.“Behind-the-scenes” secondary support is provided by lab teams and software developers.Briefly, the next few slides outline the main duties of each of the key players.
  • These web management tools you can sort by districts, facility, time period and view positives, negatives, rejected

  • Early Infant Diagnosis Results Cycle ref - Early Infant Diagnosis: System Summary (2008) – MoH & Clinton H/A Initiative National average of 2008 including rural and urban
  • Programme Questions • Can we use mobile technology to significantly speed up getting infants HIV results to their caregivers? • Can we use mobile technology to increase post-natal visits of mothers to health facilities?
  • • Delivers infant HIV results from Lab to Facilities via SMS and SMS Printers • Tracks samples through the logistics system • Provides government monitoring tools
  • HUB
  • From:Results160 Hello Maria, there are 3 DBS results for your clinic. Please reply with your PIN to retrieve these results When results are ready the central SMS System sends a message alerting the clinic workers results are ready. Workflow: Phone: Results Retrieval 1
  • Kanyihampa Clinic. Patient ID: XXXXXX- 0001-1. HIV-DNAPCR Result: NotDetected. Approved by ADH DNA-PCR LAB. When a result is ready it is sent by SMS to the printer at the facility it the sample was collected at. Workflow: Printer: Results Retrieval 1
  • • Patient tracing by Community Health Workers • SMS Reminders for post-natal visits • Specific traces for DBS results being returned
  • Quantitative: Pre-SMS System v Post-SMS System On average results were 56% faster between sample collection and delivery to caregiver

  • Way Forward • Scaling Up the system nationally with the help of partners • Each year we set scale up targets • This year we have a target of 300 sites. We are on course to meet this target. •To date we have scaled up Programme Mwana to over 462 sites.
  • Way Forward • Scaling the system nationally between now and 2015 • To date we have scaled up Programme Mwana to over 400 sites.
