Hepatitis C

We provide free hepatitis C virus (HCV) testing, treatment, cure and support for people in our communities including people who have or currently inject. We strongly believe that everyone living with HCV deserves to know they are HCV-positive and be cured.

We eliminate barriers preventing people from getting tested and cured, offer treatment at our Harm Reduction Center, provide medication storage to people without housing, support with case management and wrap-around services, and assist participants to achieve secondary goals. All medical and support visits occur at our Harm Reduction Center.

Janessa Broussard, RN, MSN, AGNP-C directs clinical services at San Francisco AIDS Foundation, overseeing the provision of HIV prevention/PrEP, sexual health, HIV and hepatitis C care; services for transgender and non-binary clients; and clinical research. She is passionate about creating models of care that address the needs of communities with unmet needs, including LGBTQ+ individuals, people experiencing homelessness and people who inject drugs. She is proud to oversee multi-site clinical services for these communities at SFAF with a nurse-led team that continues the legacy of nurses being at the forefront of HIV care. In the coming years, Janessa is excited to lead efforts to expand PrEP access to more locations and priority communities, building on the strong PrEP program established by SFAF’s clinical team.

Prior to joining SFAF, Janessa specialized in LGBTQ care and HIV primary care at the UCSF Clinician Consultation Center, as an HIV primary care nurse practitioner at CPMC Davies, and at East Bay AIDS Center (EBAC). She also worked for more than eight years as an RN in the Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant center at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center. Since June 2018, Janessa has served as the president of the Association in Nurses in AIDS Care, Golden Gate Chapter. She received her adult geriatric nurse practitioner primary care (AGNP-C) degree with an HIV focus from University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). She is currently pursuing a nursing PhD in sexual and gender minority research at UCSF, with research that will contribute to the development of comprehensive sexual and gender minority care guidelines, with attention to social justice in healthcare.

First off, I would like to say that I owe my life to the program. All of the staff work really hard to make sure everyone is helped as much as possible. This group has really been beneficial in training me how to not become reinfected, thus enabling me to pass that information on to others that really need it!
