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.
Moreover, HIV positive adolescents’ support structures can be weakened by challenging home environments and stigma in the community.
The goal of Khuluma is to provide psychosocial support for HIV positive adolescents in South Africa using mobile technology.
