SFCCC Grant Award to Increase Access to HIV Care and Treatment (IAHCT) Services

SFCCC has been awarded supplemental funding to increase access to HIV care and treatment.  A total of $38,000 has been awarded by HRSA to identify, link, re-engage or retain in care those who recently tested HIV positive and are treatment naïve; were previously diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and have never been in care; or have been out-of-care for more than a year.   The funding comes through SFCCC’s federal Health Care for the Homeless grant, in conjunction with our Ryan White Part C HIV/AIDS Early Intervention Services program.  Services are being provided by Haight Ashbury Free Clinics-Walden House, Lyon-Martin Health Services, and Mission Neighborhood Health Center/Clinica Esperanza.
