In a world where everything from reading books to dating can be done online, Healthvana is now making HIV and STD testing digital with an app — and it is LAUSD approved.

LAUSD has partnered with Healthvana to put posters in high school health classes that point student’s to an app that connects students to pre-screened, “youth-friendly” clinics. “Our goal is to provide the best referral systems with the best innovative technology to get the kids in the door as soon as possible,” said Timothy Kordic, program manager at LAUSD’s health education office’s HIV prevention unit.
