Ushahidi is delighted to announce a collaboration with AIDSPortal in the UK, and KANCO – Kenya AIDS NGO Consortium in Kenya to map the availability of HIV, AIDS, and TB services in Kenya. This collaboration is supported by Google.org, the philanthropic arm of Google. The Geo-Challenge grant awarded will make this endeavor possible. We are looking forward to making this mapping a tool that will be useful to KANCO and NGOs working in the Kenyan health space.
KANCO and AIDSportal were one of the first testers of the Alpha version of the Ushahidi platform, and we are grateful for their continued support of Ushahidi. Feedback received has been instrumental to the ‘Goma’ release and we look forward to working together on this important project.
