My Test My Way, part of the Prevention at Home program (PAH), provides at-home testing, counseling, and referrals for people at risk for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). PAH is a three-year demonstration program created by a team of clinicians and staff from The George Washington University, community organizations, and HIV clinics. PAH is designed to improve the health of adult Washington, DC residents who are enrolled in Medicaid, Medicare, or DC Alliance. PAH makes HIV testing convenient and easy, and helps HIV positive PAH participants to link to care. Your participation is key to your success and ours.

With My Test My Way, you can test for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) without going to a clinic. Discovering and treating these conditions early can put you on the road to better health. By participating in PAH, you may receive:
