Challenge

South Africa has world's biggest antiretroviral therapy (ART) programme for patients living with HIV and AIDS, and there's been a steady increase in the number of patients with non-communicable diseases (NCDs), requiring chronic therapy. A patient's experience tends to be one of long waiting times, typically above 3 hours. This poses potential adherence barriers which may lead to poor health outcomes and places a strain on the patients in terms of transport costs and loss of income.

Solution

Pelebox Technology is simple and caters for a wide range of patient groups. It will ensure that patients do not queue to collect medication (access to medication in under 2min). It will create a seamless experience that is reliable. It will allow privacy and prevention of Stigma (fear of people seeing you and knowing what condition you have).

Long-Term Impact

The project will assist 9970 people living with HIV/AIDS to adhere to treatment regiments, thereby contributing to the HIV/AIDS prevention Cascade both Nationally and Regionally.
