The SHM Foundation;

Zumbido used group mobile phone communication via SMS in order to provide support to those living with HIV/AIDS and faced with stigma and social discrimination. Overcoming this social isolation through communication with other persons faced with similar challenges can help to avoid further negative health effects, provide emotional support and improve treatment adherence.
