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

STAP has been so open, so caring, so concerned, and so loving... it's unbelievable. They treat everybody with respect and dignity.

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

HIV Testing

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.

Mud Gauntlet

The Newbsanity Mud Gauntlet is an insane 5K course featuring 27 hardcore obstacles. You’ll get to choose your difficulty level by taking either the Risk and Reward path or the Tried and True path. This allows for the seasoned athlete and the first-timer to compete together, side‑by‑side.

Cause for Celebration

Please join us in honoring our Outstanding Community Partners, those people and organizations who have stepped forward to improve their communities and assist STAP in accomplishing its mission. They have given generously of time, money and personal influence to make sure that STAP has the resources to meet the support and prevention needs in the Southern Tier. They have sacrificed significant personal capital and chosen to further something larger than themselves.

The Legacy awards, given every 5 years, honor individuals that have demonstrated a significant long term commitment to people with HIV and their families and the public health. Their contributions have improved both the quality and quantity of life for HIV+ persons in our area. While they may have focused their efforts, the impact of their actions has rippled out and made our entire community a markedly better place to live in.

Doggone Fun on the Run

A 2K walk for individuals and their dogs at Otsiningo Park in Binghamton beginning at 11 am (registration opens at 10 am).  The fund raising walk will benefit the Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS) program at Southern Tier AIDS Program (STAP). 

There will be demonstrations, prizes, raffles, contests, blessing of the animals and more!
