NJCRI - North Jersey Community Research Initiative
NJCRI is New Jersey’s largest and most comprehensive HIV/AIDS community-based organization. Our mission is “to help people with HIV/AIDS and those at risk for HIV/AIDS.” We conduct state-wide HIV clinical trials, and HIV treatment, care and prevention services in the Greater Newark Area. Populations we serve include youth and adults, men and women, men who have sex with men, people who acquire or who are at risk for HIV through injection drug use, and others.
NJCRI also seeks to address the concerns and disparities of access to health care faced by minority populations. Some of the non-HIV related services we offer include behavioral research, chronic illness management education, street outreach, substance abuse treatment, transportation, food pantry, and technical assistance to other community-based organizations. Approximately 6,000 people avail themselves of our free and confidential services each year.
