NaviGAYte Brooklyn 2.0 provides substance misuse and HIV/hepatitis prevention navigation services to men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender/gender nonconforming (TGNC) individuals of color who have sex with men, ages 13 and above. Staff use in-person and online outreach to recruit individuals into a multi-pronged intervention consisting of: sexual health, hepatitis, and substance misuse screening: brief interventions and education sessions; linkage to biomedical and behavioral interventions; and supportive services. The program also uses social media campaigns to promote awareness of mental health issues; risk reduction strategies; substance use, hepatitis, and HIV prevention options; and anti-stigma messaging.
