Highlighting World Aids Day

Since 1988, communities worldwide have come together on World Aids Day to demonstrate strength, solidarity, and to remember those we’ve lost.

In the UK alone, more than 105,000 people are currently living with HIV, contributing to a global estimate of 38 million individuals coping with the virus. Over the past four decades, more than 35 million lives have been lost to HIV or AIDS-related illnesses, marking it as one of the most devastating pandemics in history.

Despite medical advances that have transformed the landscape of HIV treatment, and specifically the effectiveness of PrEP, stigma and misconceptions persist. People living with HIV still face discrimination in various aspects of life, including work, education, housing, and even healthcare. Our software contributes not only to the technological advancement of sexual health services but also to the larger movement for change and destigmatisation. Our software tools empower Sexual Health Services to improve delivery, manage secure testing, and enable improved, more timely prescribing and clinical management.

Chris Evans, Divisional Director, Community Solutions said: “At Idox, we believe in the power of collective health initiatives. It has been fantastic to read the latest research results in the press this week around the effectiveness of PrEP. We are actively working with our customers and partners to ensure that our Lilie platform supports, and integrates with, the many emerging technologies specifically designed to support the monitoring of PrEP.”
