SHM Foundation applies advanced analytics to improve mental health among HIV positive adolescents in South Africa

SHM Foundation Case Study

The Khuluma project was carried out to enhance positive mental health amongst HIV-positive adolescents in South Africa, with the aim of reducing and ultimately preventing the spread of HIV & AIDS.

Khuluma is an integrated, cost-effective and scalable health platform, leveraging the power of mentoring to facilitate interactive closed groups of 10-15 participants.

John Snow Labs delivered the data analysis and data science aspects of the project, whose results were presented at the AIDS 2016 Conference.
