NewYork-Presbyterian's Project STAY program provides the full range of testing, treatment, and prevention for sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy.
HIV: 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.
PEP/PrEP for HIV Prevention: Project STAY can link you with treatment to prevent HIV before or after potential exposure by using a once-a-day medication. For more information, text or call our PEP/PrEP specialists at 917-580-1682.
