    Project description

    The South African project Khuluma was set up to help teenagers who are HIV positive by providing around-the-clock support through a smartphone. Project Khuluma uses mobile group chats to create a safe environment for young people to discuss anything from their HIV medication to sex, relationships, and social issues. The young people have the option to remain anonymous and each group is supervised by a trained facilitator, who can identify teenagers showing signs of depression, mental illness, or resistance to their antiretroviral treatments.
