Cape Town, South Africa (May 12, 2016) – Last week, Shout-it-Now was visited in its new Cape Town headquarters by Dr. Nancy Knight, Country Director for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in South Africa. She was joined by Mr. Steven Smith, Health Attaché at the US Embassy in Pretoria.Dr. Knight and Mr. Smith congratulated Shout-it-Now on its recent milestone of testing more than 500,000 South Africans for HIV and met with key leaders within the organization to better understand the many components of the organization’s innovative approach to HIV testing services (HTS).

“Since 2014,Shout-it-Now has delivered more than 70% of all HTS in Ekurhuleni, including more than 35,000 tests delivered to adolescent girls and young women, a population highly vulnerable to HIV infection and one that desperately needs easy access to HIV testing and care,” said

During the visit by Dr. Knight and Mr. Smith, they were able to see how technology, marketing and efficiency have contributed to Shout-it-Now’s success in engaging people to learn their HIV status.

They also toured the organization’s centralized Call Centre. Kathryn Pahl, PhD, Shout-it-Now’s Managing Director, observed, “I could tell that Dr. Knight and Mr. Smith really appreciated the depth of our Call Centre approach to linkage to care. Reading about it is very different to standing here observing ourrepresentatives as they call clients using motivational interviewing that is guided by our database containing clinical and psychosocial information on each client.”
