HIV testing is key to controlling the transmission of HIV. If people cannot get to a medical care provider or community-based organization for HIV testing, Piedmont Care is offering an FDA-approved at-home, self-administered HIV testing option. The CDC is recommending that community-based organizations, like Piedmont Care, consider at-home, self-administered HIV testing as an additional strategy to reach those most affected by HIV, since traditional HIV testing services may be interrupted due to the COVID-19 response.
The self-administered home HIV test requires no blood and offers results in 20 minutes. People qualifying for the self-testing option will also have access to a 24/7 call center and video guide to get answers quickly.
The Piedmont Care team will also provide:
- Linkage to care services for people living with HIV
- Follow-up planning and resources
- Condoms and other HIV prevention tools
