Organizational Summary:
Envision a future where health disparities do not exist, where HIV transmission is extremely rare, and where people living with HIV have access to the medications and social support they need to live healthy, long lives. San Francisco AIDS Foundation has worked to create such a future since 1982 through education, advocacy and direct prevention, substance use health and supportive services. More than 25,000 people every year access free HIV testing and STI screening, harm reduction and syringe access and disposal, community engagement, and health navigation services. We need passionate agents of social change, vanguards of public health, and creative problem-solvers to join our fight.
