The Use of Information and Communication Technologies for Providing Access to HIV/AIDS Information Management in a Resource-Poor Country
Nigeria, A Case Study

We investigate the growing use of information and communication technology in Nigeria and its potential as a tool to combat the HIV/AIDS epidemic through information management. Potential applications include data gathering for research and disease tracking, knowledge sharing, and dissemination of information on research findings, prevention methods, available care and support, and patient rights. The research is based on 1450 responses to a widely distributed questionnaire.
