iVEDiX, an innovative leader in digital visualization, analytics, and workflow solutions, announced today that its digital software platform has been selected as the technology that will continue to power the UNAIDS HIV Situation Room program as it expands into five additional African countries.
The UNAIDS Situation Room is an initiative that contributes to ending the HIV epidemic by 2030, as one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and is currently implemented in 47 Kenyan counties. This project evolved from the joint United Nations Program on HIV and AIDS’ (UNAIDS) strategic goal of a 90-90-90 target for 2020. The objective is to have 90 percent of all people living with HIV know their HIV status, 90 percent of all people with the diagnosed HIV infection receive sustained antiretroviral therapy, and 90 percent of all people receiving antiretroviral therapy will have durable viral suppression.
“The Situation Room program brings together different datasets on health,” said Taavi Erkkola, a senior advisor to UNAIDS, who is coordinating country support and building national capacity in data use. “The visual capabilities of the platform support Program Managers to do faster and easier data analysis, which strengthens programs and brings efficiencies in the right locations, at the right times.”
When UNAIDS created this initiative, they were looking for a tool that would allow member states to collaborate virtually and access national, county and facility level information. In 2015, the iVEDiX Digital Platform was chosen as the original solution and is now the integral technology behind the program’s success. iVEDiX seamlessly integrates with existing global data infrastructures and health information systems while providing remote access to reports and easy access to insights and data analytics to enhance the HIV/AIDS response. The iVEDiX Digital Platform provides unprecedented capabilities to interact with vast amounts of untapped real-time and historical health data and…
