The app is for all categories of healthcare professionals, healthcare workers, managers of the national health laboratory services, programme managers at district, provincial and national level and community-based organisations working with people living with HIV.

Ratings and Reviews
Very useful but crashes frequently
Such useful information well set out to be easily accessible.
However seem to be having problems of late with the app crashing when I go into the tabs. Hope this can be sorted out asap as I used to use this app weekly.
Good information but impossible to access since it crashes every single time I use it, making it impossible to use in the wards or on the go.
Fantastic app - but unfortunately crashes Immediately (iPhone and iPad on IOS 11). Would give it 5 stars if I could actually use it.
