Mobile Augmented Screening Tool to Increase Adolescent HIV Testing and Linkage to Care

Principal Investigator: Ian David Aronson

Because adolescents and young adults face markedly increased HIV risk yet frequently do not test, we propose to develop a Mobile Augmented Screening (MAS) tool designed to increase HIV testing, and to facilitate linkage to care and ongoing prevention education. This tool will help clinicians address undiagnosed youth HIV, and enable young patients to receive much needed treatment and avoid unknowingly transmitting infection. Our product is designed to help existing program staff reach an increased number of clients; and to improve public health by encouraging reluctant young patients to accept important HIV testing and care they may otherwise decline.
