HIV Prevention

Advances in HIV testing and treatments mean we can end HIV transmission in New York State by 2020, but only if men who have sex with men– the population most at risk of HIV transmission – test often, find a prevention plan that works for them, and treat early if they test positive for HIV. We’re here to help them do this by:

  • Promoting education campaigns
  • Operating rapid HIV and STI testing facilities
  • Running sexual health workshops
  • Providing a range of support services
  • Distributing thousands of free condoms every year throughout WNY
  • Promoting various types of prevention strategies such as PrEP, TasP, PEP, etc.
