Today, as the sun rises over the rural villages of South Africa's Eastern Cape Province, community members witness what is becoming a common sight. A motorbike speeds by and its driver readily waves; today he does not stop to chat. He is Mtiteto Mfikile and he has work to do. Meanwhile, a village nurse hears the beep of her cell phone and she too gets to work - an SMS message from a nearby laboratory gives her TB smear results of a patient. She can start appropriate treatment now.
