Mobile Game Raises Funds for HIV/AIDS Research

Epidemia The Game is a mobile game application for iOS and Android that spreads awareness about HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections to a worldwide audience. Epidemia The Game is a nonprofit initiative that aims to fund HIV/AIDS research.

In the game, the player controls a cannonlike puppet that shoots bubbles to defeat a wave of HIV and STI viruses. The puppet must seize pills for protection and dodge the virus debris and other harmful items that appear during the game.

Epidemia the Game is changing the way biomedical research foundations raise funds. It also helps to communicate the use of condoms and antiretroviral treatment to prevent HIV infection. Moreover, it contributes to advance in the HIV vaccine research.
