Aviro HIV Mentor Interactive Survey

YOUR AVIRO MENTOR | Interactive Survey  After successfully launching the Aviro HIV Med Mentor last year, Aviro Health is now engaging with users to better understand the needs of clinicians across South Africa. Echo Ledge Media produced this interactive video which allows viewers to contribute their stories and opinions and will provide the data reporting that will make it possible for the app to further improve the lives of HIV clinicians across the country. To create the animation we used previously generated illustration from the Aviro team and animated them to the voice over script. We added our own touches to make these illustrations come alive and at key points ask the user about their own experiences. These user insights are used to further develop the app as well as identify the key needs of the user. This video was embedded on the Aviro Website and used throughout their digital engagement strategy.
