We work towards creating a world where HIV transmission is rare and those who are HIV+ lead healthy lives.

The people in the community infected with AIDS need to have a support system. STAP is a strong point in our community to help this population.

We've been providing comprehensive HIV/AIDS services in the Southern Tier of New York for over 30 years.

STAP offers fast, free and confidential HIV testing at many locations throughout the Southern Tier. Knowing our HIV status can keep you and your partner safe.
