Created by the NYS Department of Health AIDS Institute (NYSDOH AI), New York Links (NYLinks) supports the delivery of routine, timely, and effective care for Persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in New York State. Specifically, the project is focused on bridging systemic gaps between HIV related services in order to achieve better outcomes for People Living With HIV (PLWH) by improving systems for monitoring, recording, and accessing information about HIV care in NYS and improving outcomes for PLWA through more effective system monitoring, recording and accessing information about HIV care in NYS. NYLinks was created in 2011 through a HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB)-sponsored Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) and has been under the Governor’s Ending the Epidemic Initiative through the NYSDOH AI since September 2015.  The ISPH serves as the Evaluator of this initiative and provides regional data support for the project.  The NYS Department of Health AIDS Institute is a partner in this project.
