CAMBA’s Ending the Epidemic (ETE) is part of a statewide plan to decrease new HIV infections to 750 by the year 2020.
The program strives to identify diagnosed and undiagnosed HIV-positive Brooklynites and connect them to healthcare and medication, including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP). We focus on groups living with or at highest risk for HIV, including young men who have sex with men (YMSM), trans individuals of color aged 13-29, MSM of color of any age, and women of color.
Program activities fall into two broad categories – social media marketing and targeted outreach. The goal is to raise awareness about multiple activities that together provide the best prevention outcome, and actively engage these high-risk individuals in CAMBA’s prevention program.
CAMBA’s ETE program provides the following services:
- Prevention screening
- Intake assessment
- PrEP/PEP education
- Assistance with insurance enrollment and social services
- Linkage to PrEP/PEP provider and linkage to care
Program staff provides services on site in Flatbush, at CAMBA’s Condom Distribution Program non-traditional sites (beauty parlors, barber shops), and at other locations in the community.
Individuals who are not members of our priority populations (e.g. men who have sex with women, trans individuals over 30) but who would still benefit from combination prevention activities will also be connected to appropriate services in this program. This program is funded by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, through an allocation by the New York City Council.
All services are provided in English and Spanish.
