Côte d’Ivoire Doctor Takes On National HIV Initiative

An App for Community Health Workers

Several days a week, Isabelle Marie Kouame, a community health worker (CHW) in rural Dimbokro, Côte D’Ivoire, makes home visits to clients in her small town. When she arrived at the door of a 40-year-old mechanic, Isabelle pulled out her phone and tapped the CommCare application. This mobile technology helps CHWs to identify and track next steps for their clients.
