Aviro is excited to announce a partnership with WRHI to support HIV self-testing in South Africa. WRHI is, amongst other activities in the space, exploring models for distributing self-test kits. Given that most self-testers tend to test at home, it has been very challenging to track results and linkage to care post-testing in these distributions. Aviro is customizing our mobile-phone based patient support tool, Ithaka, for this purpose. Through a pilot study with WRHI we will use Ithaka to determine how we can empower and support people through this often difficult and intimidating experience by helping them through the journey of testing and accessing care post-testing. Ithaka’s features will allow us to track these journeys while protecting the security and privacy of patients. We look forward to sharing our findings in upcoming newsletters.
