MyLife+

A new app is available designed to improve the health and wellbeing of people living with HIV. Developed by ViiV Healthcare and curated by the National Association of People with HIV Australia (NAPWHA), MyLife+ helps people with HIV track their medications, blood results — including CD4 count and viral load — symptoms, and even moods.

Results and information can be easily tracked allowing users to check and visualise patterns over time. The app also allows users to capture important information such as script details and treatment notes. (All information is protected by security settings and only accessible to the user.)

The app also reminds PLHIV to take their pills and attend medical appointments. As well, users can flag issues to bring up with healthcare providers. Easy-to-use and discreet, MyLife+ helps PLHIV to stay informed by providing the most-up-to-date news and health advice. Free from iTunes, MyLife+ is compatible with iPhones and iPads.
