Prevention and Wellness

The HIV/AIDS Center at Montefiore Medical Center has initiated a number of programs aimed at reducing the spread of HIV while also supporting the health of those already infected with the disease.

The goal of these programs is to educate the Montefiore community about the disease regardless of people's backgrounds while also encouraging HIV testing. In addition, the Center works to prevent the spread of the disease by counseling those affected by HIV, and eliminate the sociological fears associated with the disease by making sure patients are treated confidentially.

Prevention and wellness programs offered at The HIV/AIDS Center include:

HIV Counseling and Testing

HIV testing is available upon request using the most current testing technology, including noninvasive oral tests and rapid tests that provide results in approximately 20 minutes.

Nutritional Services

Registered dietitians provide patients with an individualized assessment of their nutritional needs and ongoing counseling and monitoring to ensure optimum health.
