After Hours Project

AHP's PAST & PRESENT
01
AHP was founded in 2002 to address the continued spread of HIV/AIDS in low-income and minority neighborhoods in Brooklyn. A 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, AHP’s mission is to provide quality health, social and supportive services to individuals in need, while reducing the spread of HIV, HCV, and STIs among high-risk populations. AHP provides a range of HIV-related services, including case management, medical transportation, treatment readiness, HIV/AIDS rapid testing, HIV education and counseling, IDU harm reduction counseling, hepatitis A and B vaccinations, HCV screening and education, condom and bleach distribution, community outreach, advocacy, referral services, and client escort, including public transportation fare cards.

AHP uses evidence-based service delivery models to provide HIV testing and syringe exchange services via mobile unit and at AHP’s storefront office in Bedford-Stuyvesant, where case management, information and referral, advocacy, and client escort services are also offered. By offering mobile services “after hours” (after 5:00 pm), AHP is able to reach at-risk individuals who are less likely to access services in traditional health settings.
