Alcohol and HIV are part of our community. Whether we drink frequently, abstain altogether, or are somewhere in between, alcohol use impacts us all, regardless of HIV status.

Join us for a forum on how alcohol affects HIV risk and HIV health, and how our city is addressing “the forgotten drug” in the context of HIV/AIDS.

This HIVision forum is free and open to the public.  There will be ample time for questions and discussion, with a reception to follow. For more information, visit or call (415) 487-3073.

About San Francisco AIDS Foundation
No city experienced epidemic levels of HIV faster than San Francisco.  At San Francisco AIDS Foundation, we work to end the epidemic where it first took hold, and eventually everywhere. Established in 1982, our mission is the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco.  Through education, advocacy and direct services for prevention and care, we are confronting HIV in communities most vulnerable to the disease. We refuse to accept that HIV transmission is inevitable.
