Investors & Funding Rounds

Edge Growth, ASISA ESD Fund, Tuksnovation, Technology Innovation Agency

 Aviro Health announced the successful closing of a pre-series A funding round from ASISA ESD Fund (managed by Edge Growth), Tuksnovation, and TIA. 

The funding will be used to improve and expand Aviro Pocket Clinic, a digital counseling service made available through health providers in the public and private sector that empowers patients with accessible and engaging counseling and linkage to services via mobile phones or devices in facilities. 

Additionally, the funding and associated networks will allow Aviro to expand its impact – first with their clinically validated and NDOH-endorsed support for HIV self-testing, but also into new use cases in HIV and other diseases where health workers have identified that they can use digital support to help their patients successfully navigate care.

With robust data and analytics capabilities, and built around a comprehensive scientific framework for behavior change that is complemented by empathetic human-centered design, the platform promises an innovative and efficient way for providers to get verifiable outcomes without having to be with the patient through the entire care pathway.
