Malawi is exploring the use of IT innovation to help in sample tracking, patient tracking and treatment management. The SATBHSSP is supporting this initiative through the e-health platform that has been rolled out in Lilongwe district. The initiative utilises smart phones and barcodes to collect and track patient information on sputum bottles and patient registration forms. The NEPAD video shooting team had time to meet with the people working on this initiative who include community volunteers. The pictures capture some of the highlights of the visit to area 25 Health centre in Lilongwe where the system is working.
