CAMBA's Ending the Epidemic (ETE) Program is a program within the HIV Prevention Department that aims to reduce transmission of HIV among high risk populations in Brooklyn. The ETE program will reach out to all high risk populations in the borough, including the following: Black and Latino men who have sex with men (MSM); individuals engaging in transactional sex; persons with HIV-positive partners; and Black and Latino men and women in high prevalence neighborhoods. The program will include two components: a targeted outreach campaign and new media outreach. Both seek to increase awareness of combination prevention – especially biomedical interventions like pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) – and recruit clients into a multi-pronged intervention. The intervention will consist of the following components: targeted outreach activities engaging high risk individuals in risk assessment and a brief intervention; delivering Combination Prevention Education sessions addressing PrEP/PEP, consistent condom use, risk reduction practices, and the importance of regular STI and HIV testing; conducting linkages to services, including referrals to clinical providers of PrEP/PEP and HIV testing, as well as social services; benefits navigation; and follow-up with clients who do not link to PrEP/PEP services.
