Transforming social and behavior communication using digital platforms: the case of USSD HIV self-assessment and PrEP adherence support tools


In 2018 in Zambia, the JSI-implemented USAID DISCOVER-Health project was one of the first to roll out pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).  In October 2018, the project developed an unstructured supplementary service data (USSD) information management system, accessed through peer-to-peer interaction on social platforms, to support PrEP self-risk assessment and improve linkage to services. This abstract was shared at the AIDS 2022 Conference.
