The EmERGE project team attended the #AIDSImpact 2019 conference in London from 29 to 31 July 2019. #EmERGE had an exhibition booth and the project was also presented in a session about new technologies.
Ben Marent (University of Brighton,UK), gave a presentation based on some of the results of the co-design workshops and interviews with community, titled ‘User experiences and communicative forms of engagement with an HIV mHealth platform’ (full abstract available at http://www.aidsimpact.com/).
The conference participants showed a lot of interest and approached the exhibition booth with questions about the functionalities of the app as well as the future plans to make it available.
