At-Home HIV Testing

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 at-home HIV test requires no blood and offers results in 20 minutes. People qualifying for the at-home 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

Piedmont Care's at-home HIV testing program is supported by donations. The pilot program is supported by the Kaiser Family Foundation, Walgreens, and the Mary Black Foundation.
