Ending the Epidemic

1259 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11226
T: (718) 675-3372

Program Summary: CAMBA’s Ending the Epidemic (ETE), part of a statewide plan to decrease new HIV infections to 750 by the year 2020, 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). ETE aims to enhance the reach of CAMBA’s existing HIV prevention programs for those living with or at highest risk for HIV, including: young men who have sex with men (YMSM) and trans individuals of color, age 13-29; MSM of color of any age; and women of color. Program activities fall into two broad categories: a social marketing campaign and targeted outreach. The aim of all program activities is to raise awareness about combination prevention and connect clients with our existing programs, which provide 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. 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.
All services are provided in English and Spanish.
 
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.
 
Eligibility: Individuals at risk for HIV or those living with HIV that are not connected to care.
Clients Served Annually: 100
Referrals Accepted: Yes.
 
This program is funded by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, through an allocation by the New York City Council.
