iThemba Life. Empowering patients to remain adherent to treatment and engaged in care


iThemba Life is a patient centric disease management solution designed to support goals of high burden disease elimination programs. iThemba was designed specifically to address the complex logistics currently used for diagnostic result delivery in many countries with the highest disease burdens.

Additionally iThemba Life supports patients to remain adherent to treatment and engaged in their care through education, reminders, and other elements. At the same time it is supporting healthcare workers with addressing clinic workflow challenges. 

iThemba Life is available to Ministries of Health or other healthcare organizations who are willing to partner with Roche to implement the solution on a regional or country-by-country basis.


iThemba Life currently supports the HIV elimination programs


iThemba Life currently supports HIV-positive adults by delivering results for viral load (VL) testing and also supports Early Infant Diagnosis (EID) for HIV-exposed infants by sending their caregiver notifications that diagnostic test result is available.  

In 2014, Roche announced, the Global Access Program. In 2019, the Program was expanded to include Tuberculosis (TB), Hepatitis B and C (HBV and HCV), and Human Papillomavirus (HPV). In the near future, iThemba Life will also support other disease elimination programs in line with our Global Access Program.
