Goal

Develop a HIV Risk Assessment mobile app for serodiscordant couples (where one partner is HIV positive and the other partner HIV negative). The Assessing your Risk of Contracting HIV (ARCH) iPad app would assist people in HIV-discordant relationships with HIV risk reduction strategies. The app starts by generating a number that represents said couples personalized risk of contracting HIV over time given their choices related to condom usage, type of sex act, and various preventive measures.

The risk calculations made were based on a Microsoft Excel -based calculator. Functional prototype completed and shared with CDC program staff. The Assessing your Risk of Contracting HIV (ARCH) – Couples iPad app would assist people in HIV-discordant relationships with their choice of HIV risk reduction strategies by generating an number that represents their personalized risk of contracting HIV over time given their choices related to condom usage, type of sex act, and various preventive measures.
