Danya Presents Findings of Pilot Study at East African Health Conference in Kenya

SILVER SPRING, Md., March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Danya International, Inc. (Danya), a communications, research, and technology firm, will share the results of a pilot study on the effectiveness of mobile video-enabled phones in meeting the requirements for monitoring medication adherence by tuberculosis (TB) patients during the 3rd East African Health and Scientific Conference. The findings of the Mobile Direct Observation Treatment (MDOT) Pilot Project, which received high positive ratings from the patients and health care workers who participated, will be unveiled during the Conference in Nairobi City on March 25-27, 2009.

The study also examined the reactions of participants to text and video health messages sent via the mobile phone.
