Welcome to the BATLab’s Weekly Lit Review, where every week we post peer-reviewed papers relevant to our research projects.

This week, take a look at this interesting paper published in South African Journal of Information Management in 2015:



The key aim of this article is to explore the status quo of the implementation of information and communication technologies (ICT) in selected intervention programs in the South African human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) care delivery value chain. The contribution of this article is the mapping of key intervention activities along an HIV care value chain and to suggest a roadmap towards the integration of ICTs in service delivery programs. The 20 managers of HIV/AIDS intervention programs were surveyed, followed by semi-structured in-depth interviews with these respondents. A further five in-depth interviews were conducted with experts in the ICT area for exploring the uses of and barriers to integrating ICTs in the HIV/AIDS care delivery value chain. The researchers mapped the barriers to implementation and ICT tools utilized within the HIV/AIDS care delivery value chain, which proves to be a useful tool to explore the status quo of technology in such service delivery programs.
