The Pamoja SMS project supports implementation and expansion of high quality HIV prevention, care and treatment services at facilities. Twice a week, SMS messages and emails are sent to health workers in Pamoja-supported sites, encouraging them to handle service delivery differently (e.g. decentralization, task shifting, integration of services, mentoring) and provide important updates in key services. The goal is to improve access to quality care by improving local capacity for long term sustainability.
