San Francisco AIDS Foundation Introduces HIV Testing to Sixth Street
Date:3/22/2010

Program furthers agency initiative to diagnose acute HIV infection

SAN FRANCISCO, March 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- San Francisco AIDS Foundation has introduced free, confidential HIV testing to the services it provides along the Sixth Street corridor, one of the city's hot spots for HIV infection. The new services expand on the agency's successful HIV testing program at Magnet, its community health center for gay men in the Castro, and its efforts to encourage early diagnosis.

"Sixth Street is well-trafficked by many San Franciscans most vulnerable to HIV infection," said Barbara Kimport, interim CEO of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. "By introducing HIV testing to places like Sixth Street where HIV continues to be a major problem, we move one step closer to radically reducing new infections in San Francisco."

The new HIV testing program focuses on people engaging in high-risk behaviors who may not otherwise have regular access to medical care and counseling services, particularly intravenous drug users and African-American men who are having sex with men.
