Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We developed a Web-based application delivered on PDAs (Colecta-PALM in Peru, Pambazuko-PALM in Kenya), to collect data from HIV patients and to facilitate HIV provider training. Colecta-PALM provides tailored feedback (behavioral messaging) based on risk assessment responses for HIV patients. Pambazuko-PALM collects patient risk assessment data, and delivers counseling protocol training and evaluation to nurses involved in HIV care.
