Comprehensive Testing, Treatment and Prevention

NewYork-Presbyterian's Project STAY program provides the full range of testing, treatment, and prevention for sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy.


We offer testing, counseling, treatment, and support for people living with HIV and those at increased risk for the infection. People with HIV may need a variety of services such as housing, mental health care, help with getting a job, and other services. We can help you get to the right agency to get what you need. Project STAY also has a full program to provide medical and mental health services for young people living with HIV. To make an appointment, call 646-234-0417
