Using Mobile Rapid Diagnostic Tests for HIV and Malaria in Zimbabwe

Project Overview

With support from Econet Wireless and the Zimbabwean Ministry of Health, Global Solutions for Infectious Diseases (GSID) created a mobile system with Dimagi and ODK Diagnostics to better process rapid diagnostic tests for HIV and malaria. The system utilizes CommCare’s case management and reporting features to digitize health workers’ workloads, and ODK-Dx’s ability to process, analyze, and return RDT results with computer vision algorithms.
