about the program

The purpose of the project is to reduce the inequity of HIV services for Latinos in Maryland by expanding the reach and impact of home HIV diagnostic tests among the highest risk populations in Baltimore City, Montgomery County and Prince Georges County. The project is based on the optimization of existing resources to avoid duplication of efforts.

Thus, the project has formed a Community Advisory Directory to coordinate the continuum of HIV care for seropositive people or those whose behaviors put them at risk of contracting HIV.

How can we help?

The project promotes home HIV tests (tests that allow self-diagnosis of HIV) and distributes them free of charge to populations at greatest risk, mainly transgender women, gay men, and men who have sex with men. Each home test user is connected with a community advocate who helps them navigate the health system to obtain culturally appropriate HIV services.

Get tested for HIV without leaving home

If the result is negative
Excellent! Our health promoters can help you with tips and recommendations to prevent the transmission of HIV and other STDs to others. Get tested every 6 months.
If the result is positive
Don’t worry! There is free treatment that will allow you to live a full and completely normal life.
If you don’t make the test
You run the risk of being sick and not knowing it, which will prevent you from receiving the treatment that can save your life and prevent you from infecting others.
If you need personalized support our Community Health Workers are willing to help!
