  • Purpose and significanceMany HIV-positive New Yorkers receive health and social services at state-regulated AIDS Adult Day Health Care Programs (ADHCPs). These programs provide an array of therapeutic and health education services but they have been slow to adopt computer-based tools for health promotion. Housing Works is a large AIDS Service Organization with three ADHCP sites in New York City whose administration has expressed a desire to expand their use of technology.Computer-based technologies for learning can deliver interactive content that can be accessed at the user’s convenience and can help ADHCPs deliver agency-branded messages with their specific client population in mind.
