HIV Advocates Asks: What Do You Think Of This App That Could Test HIV In 15 Minutes?

March 30, 2015


Researchers at Columbia University in New York has developed an iPhone app and dongle that could very well change a lot of things in the fight against HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. This prototype app can actually test people for HIV and STDs such as syphilis and even get results in just 15 minutes. The device plugs into an iPhone or other smartphone and can analyze blood samples which can then be screened for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.


According to available reports, the device just costs US $34.00. With a fairly affordable price and with such a groundbreaking purpose, the app and dongle could very well revolutionize HIV diagnosis especially in remote areas or in areas where homosexuality is considered illegal or banned altogether.


What do you think of this development? Do you think the app can help the advocacy especially led by HIV Advocates?


HIV Advocates is a global initiative that aims to share news, experiences, strategies and new tools that will energize human rights movements and communities fighting HIV/AIDS, wants to address. Do you think that the HIV app can play an important role in the fight for more awareness and fight against social stigma and discrimination?
