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.

This public forum explored how alcohol affects HIV risk and HIV health, and how our city is addressing “the forgotten drug” in the context of HIV/AIDS.

This forum was held on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at the LGBT Center in San Francisco.
