The next step in the development of the HIV Digital Vending Machines is their re-purposing into Sexual Health Digital Vending Machines. As part of the COVID-19 response Brighton and Sussex Universities Hospital NHS Trust has given us financial support to achieve this. Machines that were housed at the Rainbow Hub, Subline and the Marlborough have been returned to Aeguana to be modified. These machines will be able to dispense STI Kits for heterosexual men and women, trans men and women, and MSM, as well as continuing to stock HIV tests. We have an entirely new interface so users can switch between services easily.
There is a no touch journey where the interface is mirrored on the users’ mobile phone for those anxious about COVID-19 transmission.
Once the work has been completed we will let you know where they will be housed.
