Supporting organisations on the frontlines

BCG Vaccine Clinical Trial

A consortium of world leading Pulmonology, TB and Immunology clinicians, scientists, public health professionals and civil society members mobilised to start a randomised controlled trial (RCT) among South African health workers. The Mobenzi tools were used to digitise fieldwork and data collection.

COVID-19 Reporting in Nigeria

The Society for Telemedicine and eHealth in Nigeria used the Mobenzi tools to support the Nigerian Ministry of Health to provide real-time data on COVID-19 patient caseloads, bed availability at facilities and other information vital to guiding the country's response.

COVID-19 toolkits for schools & workplaces

Our toolkits contained several form templates to help organisations of all kinds.
These templates could be customised or organisations could create their own forms.

We partnered with occupational health experts from the University of KwaZulu-Natal and University of Cape Town to develop screening tools that could be adapted for various situations including:

Employee screening for the workplace

Allowing employees to self-screen using any web browser with automated verification of results by scanning a QR code upon arrival.


Family screening for schools

Parents could screen their children and print a re-usable QR code for rapid verification at school. Previous responses could be pre-filled to speed up repeat screening.


Visitor & Customer screening

Visitors and customers can pre-screen themselves by scanning a QR code displayed at the point of entry. Customise the form to your specific needs.


Other templates inside the toolkits

In addition to the screening tools, we developed additional templates to help teams with the transition to remote work and to keep in touch with employees and customers.

Assessing the socio-economic impact of COVID-19

We supported government agencies, industry associations and other key stakeholders to assess the socio-economic impact of the outbreak, and to help fight misinformation and fear.

Below are a few examples of assessments, surveys and tools that were customised and deployed.
