Evaluating feasibility and potential impact of text messages on HIV risk awareness in young women in rural Kenya: a pilot study

  • Project Lead(s): Njambi Njuguna

    In Kenya, majority (84%) of HIV-infected individuals are not aware of their status and one-third of these reported not testing because they did not perceive themselves to be at risk. We propose to use text messages to raise HIV awareness and increase HIV testing among young women in colleges in rural Kenya.
