Description: Cell-life uses Information Communication Technology (ICT) to develop solutions that support the management and monitoring of HIV/Aids in the public health sector. Their solutions have a central focus on treatment (ART) but also cover prevention and Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) aspects. Additionally, they develop custom solutions to meet specific requirements in other arenas. All solutions fall under a Cell-Life version of the open-source software GNU GPL (General Public License), which allows for widespread public access, modification and distribution of applications in the public sector.
                                                                                    These are two examples of Cell-life mobile solutions:
Aftercare - A cell phone menu-based, real-time system for counselors to capture treatment-relevant data from the patient, such as symptoms, drug adherence and socio-economic factors. This information is instantly and directly logged to a central database. Cell-Life''''s technology eliminates the need for cumbersome paperwork, and provides a solution to log accurate data about patients on a large scale and with minimum cost, maximum efficiency and significantly less human error. In addition, various modifications to this system can result in a variety of application solutions that require remote data collection components.
Remote Booking for VCT - This is an Internet and cell phone-based system that allows large organizations (corporations and universities) to manage the bookings for HIV Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) sessions.
