Health Promotion

CAMBA provides prevention services for people living with HIV/AIDS and populations at risk of HIV transmission. In Brooklyn, these services are especially critical as the number of new HIV cases continues to increase and remains the highest of all NYC boroughs. CAMBA’s services include evidence-based interventions that target women, prevention services for young gay men/young men who have sex with men, and food and nutrition services for people living with HIV/AIDS and their minor children.

CAMBA works with several partnering agencies to refer clients for HIV/STI testing.

CAMBA also offers a culturally inclusive diabetes prevention program and overdose prevention services for those struggling with opioid addiction.
