ICT Toolkit for Integrated Prevention, Testing and Linkage to Care Across HIV, Hepatitis, STIs and Tuberculosis in Europe
Online digital tools are considered an innovative method to promote HIV, hepatitis and STIs prevention, testing and treatment services, overcoming individual and social barriers, especially for younger people and other, possibly hard-to-reach, target population groups. In this paper, we introduce INTEGRATE RiskRadar, a web and mobile application developed in the scope of the EU-supported INTEGRATE Joint Action (JA), that aims to enhance the integration of combination prevention, testing and linkage to care for HIV, hepatitis, STIs and tuberculosis by providing integrated information and digital tools regarding all four diseases to population groups at increased risk, aiming to eliminate the individual and social barriers to effective adoption of prevention practices, testing and linkage to care, and thus reduce the incidence and burden of these diseases in the European Region.
