HIV/AIDS Prevention

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, a social marketing project for parents of LGBTQ youth to promote acceptance called Project ALY, and a condom distribution program.

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