National Center for Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control (CENAT)

The Organization: The National Center for Tuberculosis & Leprosy Control (CENAT) is part of the Ministry of Health in Cambodia. The department seeks to improve the health of the Cambodian people in order to contribute to socio-economic development and poverty reduction in Cambodia by reducing the morbidity and the mortality due to Tuberculosis and Leprosy.

The relationship: In partnership with the Family Health International (FHI), we developed The TB Lab Result Alert System. The TB Lab Result Alert System is a web based application with SMS capabilities that enables a user at a local health center to send information about the TB smear to the system as well as providing a way for the lab technician to send lab results via SMS to the system (using Nuntium gateways connected to local mobile operators). This online system also provides the ability for health workers at the national level to view reports, manage users and locations as well as use specific template message settings.
