Project Example

Malaria Medication Text Message Reminders

In this project in Ghana, people receiving treatment for malaria received a text message every 12 hours, around breakfast and dinner time, over the course of two and a half days for each of the six doses of ACT.

The messages reminded them to take their malaria drugs; they either read “Please take your MALARIA drugs!” or “Please take your MALARIA drugs! Even if you feel better, you must take all the tablets to kill all the malaria.”
