Providing psychosocial support for HIV positive adolescents in South Africa using mobile technology

There is growing awareness that HIV/AIDS affected and infected adolescents may be at increased risk of mental health problems and distress. Depression and anxiety are associated with treatment non-compliance, which can have a significant impact on health status.
