Remain healthy and free
We create opportunities for clients to test and treat HIV today, so they can own their tomorrow.
Shout-It-Now has developed a unique and highly scalable approach to HIV screening and initial treatment. For those who are at risk of being affected by HIV and AIDS, Shout-It-Now offers free, fast and friendly HIV screening and immediate, onsite initiation onto Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART) for HIV+ clients.
The changing face of the epidemic led us to develop a revolutionary new semi-automated testing solution which further leverages technology and incorporates immediate, life-saving on-site Antiretroviral medication initiation. This is in response to the international 90-90-90 goal, which aims for 90% of HIV+ people to know their status, 90% of those to be on sustained Antiretroviral Therapy, and 90% of those to achieve viral suppression.
Now in it’s pilot phase, our mobile Test & Treat vehicles continue to offer convenient hours and locations, with the benefit of increased flexibility in terms of their ability to reach harder to access locations and limited set-up and strike-down time, which allows us to serve multiple sites on one day. Our sophisticated technology and vibrant energetic staff ensure a speedy and respectful experience for our clients, as well as an efficient, effective and scalable model for our funders. Fast, Free & Friendly service remains at the core of what we offer and dictates what we do and how we do it.
Our Call Centre continues to provides telephonic support to those who test HIV+, and ensures they are linked to care, specifically Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART), either at our mobile site or through local government clinics.
While we are a secular non-profit organisation, our approach is very similar to running a profit-driven business. Specifically, we establish plans and critically measure our success and failure and hold ourselves accountable. Shout-It-Now takes a pragmatic approach to solving problems. We’re to-the-point, non-bureaucratic, efficient and goal-oriented.
Our use of technology means that we are able to efficiently collect data that we analyse to facilitate continuous improvement of our offering. We are able to track multiple demographics, repeat clients, HIV incidence and links to care at the touch of a button and use this information in an ongoing basis to inform improvements.
