Avert is working in partnership with Reach Digital Health to deliver Young Africa Live, a project funded by the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Young Africa Live is creating an online ecosystem that supports the health and wellbeing of young people in South Africa, working with B-Wise, a National Department of Health platform that provides young people with sexual health information. Using WhatsApp and Facebook as the primary channels for engagement, we are meeting young people where they already are.
Previously known as Praekelt.org, Reach Digital Health builds on 15 years of experience scaling digital health programmes to allow faster and more cost-effective implementations in various health domains. Reach has connected the health system with people and communities in over 200 countries through highly available mobile technology.
