There are many PIRATES trying to steal and destroy these treasures - HIV, sexual abuse, violence, and malnutrition. The KidzAlive team from Zoë-Life are on a mission to find and protect these valuable children.

FOR HIV & TB HAS GONE DIGITAL!

The KidzAlive Talk Tool app has been adapted from our original paper-based HIV testing, counselling and disclosure tool that was developed in 2009.

Leveraging mobile technology and creative storytelling, to enhance HIV prevention, care and treatment for children and adolescents, the KidzAlive Mobilized program aims to help fill the gap.

Using wireless technologies, the program trains healthcare workers and empowers HIV-exposed and -infected children and adolescents, and their primary caregivers, to overcome barriers that prevent children from receiving HIV testing and treatment and to set them on path to a health future.

We are currently embarking on a scale-up research project with

passionate and reliable KidzAlive Champions across South Africa.

To learn more about the pilot and our partners, please download the case study.
