Program Summary
CAMBA’s Young Men’s Health Project (YMHP) aims to reduce transmission of HIV among young men who have sex with men (YMSM) ages 13-29, including those who identify as transgender or gender nonconforming, with a focus on communities of color in Brooklyn.  YMHP uses a strength-based, youth development approach to provide culturally competent and comprehensive prevention and support services, including: client recruitment through enhanced and new media outreach; health education and risk reduction counseling; linkage to HIV, STD, and HCV testing and screening; a PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) support program; linkage, navigation, and retention to care; linkage to supportive services; and condom education and distribution. All services are provided in English and Spanish.
  • 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 UMSM who may not be ready to commit to a longer intervention
  • Many Men, Many Voices (3MV): a seven-session, group-level HIV and STD prevention intervention for black gay men. The intervention addresses factors that influence the behavior of black men who have sex with men, including cultural, social, and religious norms; interactions between HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases; sexual relationship dynamics; and the social and psychological influences that racism and homophobia have on HIV risk behaviors.
  • Anti-Retroviral Treatment and Access to Services (ARTAS): an individual-level, multi-session, time-limited intervention to link individuals who have been recently diagnosed with HIV to medical care. Through ARTAS, clients are encouraged to identify and use personal strengths; create goals for themselves; and establish an effective, working relationship with the Prevention Coordinator (LC). 
Program staff provides services and interventions on-site at both the Fulton Avenue and Flatbush Avenue sites, as well as at other locations within the co​​mmunity, such as schools and other agencies that have programs for YMSM.
