iStayHealthy is the mobile app for iPhone/iPad and Android devices. Having worked in HIV charities in Germany and the UK for many years it is my contribution to the community. iStayHealthy is completely non-commercial and free of charge. The first version of the app was launched on iTunes in March 2011, with the Android version following in November 2011.

My main aim was to give people living with HIV a tool that helps them manage their condition better. In particular:
  • to record and review their essential blood results (CD4/Viral Load)
  • to record and manage their current medication (anti-retroviral as well as non-HIV specific meds)
  • to set medication reminders helping users taking their medications regularly and on time.
I am very pleased with the success iStayHealthy enjoys. And I am very grateful for the great support I received from POZ magazine - and lately - Gaydar to help promote the tool. As well as, of course, the MANY users that contacted me directly and helped steer iStayHealthy in the right direction.

Ultimately, our main goal should be to eradicate HIV from this earth. In the meantime I hope that this tool empowers users to continue leading a fulfilling and healthy life.

For iPhone users of the app: sometimes the app takes a while to load the data. During this time, the data will not be displayed in the app. On some devices, the loading indicator isn't shown. This will be fixed in the next version. In the meantime, I suggest to wait for a couple of minutes, the data should then appear.

For Android users: there will be a small update to fix an issue with sending results by email shortly.
