Program areas at Public Health Solutions

Hiv/aids. Phs contracts with the nyc department of health and mental hygiene (nycdohmh) to administer federal, state, and local funding to support over 200 community-based organizations and hospitals in the delivery of hiv prevention and care services. Our approach is two-fold: we collaborate with government agencies, service providers, and individuals to ensure that public funds for a comprehensive network of services are available for those living with and at risk for hiv/aids, while also integrating hiv prevention interventions into our own health programs.

Neighborhood wic. Wic is a program of the new york state department of health funded by the united states department of agriculture (usda). Phs administers the neighborhood wic program under contract with the new york state department of health (nysdoh). We help over 35,000 eligible pregnant and nursing women and children up to age five years of age to enroll in the new york state wic (women infants and children) program each year. Through our neighborhood wic program, we provide nutrition education sessions led by wic nutritionists on healthy eating and physical activity, breastfeeding support, checks and ewic cards to purchase nutritious foods. We also make referrals to other services including snap and health insurance (co-located at many of our sites), medical and dental providers, childcare, and other needed services. We administer nine free-standing neighborhood wic centers in the bronx, brooklyn, and queens.

Emergency preparedness. Phs is the fiscal and administrative agent for the nycdohmh for public health emergency preparedness and hospital preparedness program agreements. The public health emergency preparedness program provides funds to states and directly funded-cities to prepare for and respond to emerging public health threats, including acts of bioterrorism, and to support regional readiness initiatives. The hospital preparedness program supports improvement of surge capacity and enhancement of community and hospital preparedness for public health emergencies.
