About Us

<code>WelTel Kenya is a nascent Non Profit Organization/NGO that originated in Kenya, but has headquarters in both<br />Nairobi and British Columbia, Canada. WelTel is committed to providing evidence-based, patient-centred, health<br />solutions, through the use of innovative, mobile technology, including low cost means such as SMS ‘texting’, in<br />the management of HIV/AIDS and other health issues. WeTel is currently initiating a scale up of its service in<br />Kenya, and will be testing the launch of its mHealth service delivery model and SMS software platform at several<br />clinical sites, and looking for new business opportunities to further advance this innovative method of health<br />care delivery through mobile phones. WelTel’s service delivery model was developed and proven in a clinical<br />(research) trial (Lancet, Nov 2010), which proved that mHealth (mobile health) can improve health outcomes. It<br />was also able to empower individuals, strengthen communities and save lives.</code>
