Be Safe – Mobile!

Man Driving with Cell

Earlier this week, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), an independent federal agency charged with promoting transportation safety, voted unanimously to recommend a nationwide ban on the nonemergency use of portable electronic devices (other than those designed to support the driving task) for all drivers. Specifically, the NTSB has called on all states and the District of Columbia to prohibit the use of mobile phones while behind the wheel.

At we are committed to using mobile to extend the reach our HIV Programs and making information accessible to our users where they are.

As we have written previously, some studies have projected that mobile internet use will surpass traditional desktop internet use by 2014—less than 5 years away (source: Mary Meeker – Morgan Stanley Exit Disclaimer).

In this new era of mobile computing, we encourage you to continue seeking information and resources on your mobile devices, and to do so safely.

    I’am a COB case manager working with HIV clients, family, and collateral for almost 8 years. I would like to keep posted on any available research, benefits available to better advocate for my clients

  2. I support a complete ban on driver (car and truck) use of mobile phones and devices, excepting only mounted GPS and professional usage by emergency/police/fire/public health workers.
    I also totally support use of mobile phones and devices in any of the myriad of uses that support good health, proper nutrition and medication, adherence, or any other useful medical, mental health, and public health application!
