mHealth (healthcare using mobile communication technologies) is being strengthened as a new tool to tackle the global crisis in inadequate workforce and patient monitoring, especially in resource-limited settings. High numbers of people living with TB/HIV fail treatment and develop resistance because they cannot maintain a high degree of adherence to their medication regimens. This paper illustrates how a simple and inexpensive SMS-based mHealth application can be used to facilitate the TB/HIV treatment.
