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. It achieves this by providing 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:
- Healthy Relationships (HR): A five-session, small-group intervention for women living with
HIV/AIDS that focuses on developing skills and building self-efficacy to enable participants to make informed and safe decisions about disclosure and behavior.
- 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
- 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.
