website of the activity
Activity description: The Indus Hospital in Karachi has reported a dramatic increase in case detection (+300% in case detection and 500% increase in pediatric notifications) through a Stop TB Partnership supported program that uses mobile phone technology and financial incentives to track down people with tuberculosis (TB). The incentive system operates using mobile banking facilities. Doctors report their activities using their mobile phones on the Hospital’s mobile data collection system and receive a text message telling them how many cases they have helped to detect. These data are used to calculate monthly incentives, which are transferred to their mobile banking account.
