Introduction: mobile Health Technology is rapidly advancing and becoming a cost effective option for intervention delivery particularly for isolated and hard to reach populations, such as people living with HIV/AIDS. We conducted a literature review to evaluate the utilization of mobile phone technology for HIV prevention and care.
Methods: We conducted a literature review using the searchTerms to be removed from the MESH such as Mobile phone technology, mobile health, AIDS and HIV on the online databases such as PubMed/Medline, Web of Science, ProQuest, Science Direct, SID, Iran Medex and WHO databases from 2006 to 2016 and those available in full-text articles were selected and were used in writing this article (totaly30articles). The review was conducted according to CONSORT and STROB guideline.
Results: Mobile Health as a subset of e-health, security and confidentiality principles and the ability to produce text messages, voicemail, Internet access and GPS, can be effective in providing health information to people at risk of HIV, encourage and remind AIDS patients to continue treatment and self-care and clinical data collection in AIDS patients and do medical research strides forward.
Conclusion: The science and practice of mobile Health for HIV are evolving rapidly, but still in their early stages and needs more rigorous investigations to provide evidence of long-term impact on clinical indicators.
