HIV – one of the world’s deadliest infectious disease killers – needs no introduction. It has killed almost 10 million people over the last 10 years.
What makes these facts even more worrisome is that there are effective treatments available and there is no reason anyone should die from HIV. Sadly, in emerging economies where HIV can have a prevalence rate in the range 3 to 20% of the population, up to 30% of adults and 40% of children who are HIV positive do not take their medications. There are 38.4 million people living with HIV, 70% in Africa. Kenya has one of the world’s largest populations of people living with HIV/AIDs and approximately 30% are not taking treatment.
This study brings together key healthcare partners, resources, and technology to explore the impact of blockchain and crypto rewards in addressing the major challenge in improving survival and treatment rates of people living with HIV and AIDS
