Black Health Center of Excellence

We’re here for you every step of the way. From HIV diagnosis through treatment and care, our team provides one-on-one case management, individual counseling sessions, education about HIV, support and community groups, and practical and emotional support in dealing with life’s challenges.

We provide assistance to Black and African American people living with HIV in San Francisco. People of all sexual orientations and gender identities are welcome.

If you’re interested in making a change in your life—whether that’s improving your health, evaluating your relationship with drugs and alcohol, improving your relationships, or finding housing—we’re here to provide resources and support along the way. We believe you are the expert in your own life.
