CAMBA’s Women’s Prevention Services program reaches out to women at risk for HIV and other STIs in Brooklyn. The program promotes well-being by raising awareness and educating and empowering women. We provide a range of options, including one-time educational workshops; group-level, evidence-based interventions; comprehensive risk counseling services; supportive counseling services; and referrals to HIV, STI and hepatitis testing. All services are provided in English and Spanish.
Women’s Prevention Services offers three group-level interventions that are part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Diffusion of Effective Behavioral Interventions initiative:
- Video Opportunities for Innovative Condom Education and Safer Sex (VOICES/VOCES): A single-session, video-based intervention that aims to increase condom use and is a means to initially engage women who may not be ready to commit to a longer intervention
- Sisters Informing Sisters on Topics about AIDS (SISTA): A five-session social skills training curriculum designed to enhance self-worth and to teach assertiveness and communication skills
- Women Involved in Life Learning from Other Women (WILLOW): Designed for HIV women and focuses on the development of coping strategies, goal-setting and improved decision-making skills
Program staff provide services and interventions on site in Flatbush and also at other locations within the community, such as shelters, schools, and other agencies that have programs for women. This program is funded by the NYS AIDS Institute.
