The proposed mobile health innovation termed Patient-Centered System For Collaborative Management Of TB And HIV Treatment In Botswana. (Communicable Diseases Management) aims at using mobile technology and web based services to help address objectives of collaborative TB and HIV activities as specified in both the WHO and Botswana TB/HIV Policies, thus providing improved delivery of health care services in the management of these two diseases. The country’s TB/HIV co-infection ranges between 60-80% of TB patients in most districts. HIV is the main reason for failure to meet Tuberculosis control targets in high HIV settings while TB is a major cause of death among people living with HIV in Botswana, hence the need for collaborative management of the two diseases.
