Description of AIDS Health Risk Appraisal

The AIDS/HIV Health Risk Appraisal is a confidential interactive risk communication computer program designed to answer two questions:

  1. What is the probability that I have ever been exposed to HIV, and do I need a blood test?

  2. What is the probability that I have been exposed to HIV in the last year, and how do I reduce that probability in the next year?

Appropriate audiences include alternative test sites, drug treatment centers, blood banks, STD clinics, prenatal clinics and family planning centers.

I was involved with the architecture, design, and implementation of this project and I was also the project manager for this research sponsored by Lifespan Research Institute and University Park Pathology Associates. This was sponsored by a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) given out by the National Institute of Health (NIH).
