Ambulatory Care Network Community Programs

Project KISS

Project K.I.S.S. is a Ryan White Part D funded adolescent HIV prevention program that provides services to youth ages 13-24. Our name stands for "Know Your Status, Inform your Partner(s), Stay Safe." We engage youth through innovative health education, HIV/AIDS awareness, safer sex products and prevention counseling, and rapid HIV testing. Our services are accessible to all youth regardless of race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability to pay. Our staff reflects our target population and is committed to working with youth. We educate young people about HIV/AIDS through conversations, role-play, written material, educational workshops, and events.

Mission

Project K.I.S.S.'s mission is to identify HIV positive youth between the ages of 13-24 and bring them into medical care through referrals. We also aim to educate at-risk negative youth on HIV prevention. We achieve this mission by providing free, non-judgmental, anonymous/confidential HIV Counseling and Testing, as well as comprehensive dialogue and activity based health education workshops throughout New York City and adjacent boroughs.

Baker 23 Clinic

Project K.I.S.S. is housed within the Baker 23 Family Center at New York Presbyterian Hospital. The Family Center was one of the first designated comprehensive pediatric/adolescent HIV/AIDS care centers in New York State.

Today, we have an interdisciplinary team of 18 people providing care for children and adolescents, from birth to 24 years. In addition, the program provides two distinct services to the HIV infected and affected youth of New York City – on-site medical and psychosocial care and an outreach program.
