I have been doing some work with the CDC in Lusaka, Zambia for the past year or so.  I will be providing more information about this project in my blog over the next couple of weeks as well.

If you are a Microsoft employee reading this and you are planning to attend the internal Microsoft conference TechReady5 in Seattle this July, I hope you can stop by the session I will be presenting at TR5 about this work (with my colleague Anton Delsink).

Saving Lives with Visual Studio Team System
Learn about a real world application which uses Visual Studio Team System as part of a current project. This project is building a comprehensive, electronic medical records and treatment tracking system for HIV/AIDS treatments. The application uses smart cards and is being built to support record keeping for entire developing countries (Ethiopia and Zambia, Africa).  This session will consist first of an explanation of the application itself, and then of live demos showing how the use of team system has improved the overall quality of the application. There will also be discussion of software lifecycle best practices (i.e. MSF) as implemented using VSTS in this application.
