The paper describes the telemedicine platform implemented to support the Swaziland caregivers in their fight against the AIDS/HIV disease. The number of physicians and specialists is severely insufficient in Sub-Saharan Africa and technology can support them offering the possibility of real-time top-level consulting, learning tools, scientific documentation availability, and data exchange with the physicians of the Division of Infectious Diseases, Hospital L. Sacco. The platform has been implemented using the WordPress CMS in addition with LMS tools to ensure usability and easy platform management by the African staff. The platform has been positively tested and local personnel has been trained. Aim of the project is the platform integration in the daily hospital routine.
