Good storytelling strengthens social movements
Today is World Aids Day, a day where individuals and organisations from around the world come together to bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic. Mobile phones are increasinly playing a key role in combatting HIV/AIDS, providing public education and information services, patient monitoring and support, data collection, emergency medical services, and even educational games. We have written much on this topic, of immense importance to the world where there are now more than 33 million people living with the disease, making it one of the most destructive epidemics in recorded history. Throughout the day, we’ll feature a few projects that use or have used mobile technology in HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment that stand out.
