“I have been on ARVs for over 6 years. Everything was okay until the birth of my daughter when I got too busy and started taking my pills late as well as missing some. However, due to this, I had to be changed to second line ARVs. This is around the time Call for Life was introduced at IDI. I am happy because along with other reminders I had set on my own, I have another one to ensure I take my new pills on time.” Carol during the official signing of the Uganda Academy for Health Innovation and Impact MOU with Ministry of Health.
Didas Byaruhanga is one of the patients who are enrolled for the TAMA program. He notes that until last year 2015 he was requested to be part of the TAMA program and had some expectations; it will be a huge reminder in between our work schedules since we tend be busy most of the time. Also the health information package will be very useful like; the viral load, issues of family planning which is rare for men to get as well as the CD4 instead of disturbing the doctor-we shall easily pick this information from this platform. “Personally I am ready to use this platform and indeed I have no single problem with it, my goal is live longer and healthy”, says Didas.
