The uptake of apps across the continent has been surprisingly high, in Kenya 99% of internet access is from a mobile device, 61% of views on BBC’s mobile site are from Nigeria and in South Africa 84% of mobile users have downloaded a mobile app.

"It also allows users to annotate the maps and communicate with each other – so a hospital where stocks of antiretroviral drugs are running low, for example, can work with a nearby hospital with a three-month supply of the same treatment to avoid provisions running out." In developing the system, the data team used the Android capabilities of Google Maps to build the main interface of the HIV map, which contains the most accurate and up-to-date data for Kenya.
It taps into three sources: HIV estimates made by UNAIDS, Kenya’s District Health Information System – containing everything from the number of people treated in hospitals to condom distribution figures – and community level data, which includes survey responses from the public about the quality of the services they access.
