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.

Pronouns: He/him/his

Pierre-Cédric B. Crouch, PhD, ANP-BC, ACRN

Director of Nursing

Pierre-Cédric Crouch leads the delivery of sexual health services including PrEP, PrEP 211, Rapid HIV treatment initiation and re-engagement programs, and hepatitis C testing and treatment at San Francisco AIDS Foundation. He developed our PrEP Health Program at Magnet, which is the largest nurse-led PrEP program in the world and has garnered world-wide recognition.

Pierre is from New Orleans where he obtained his B.S.N. from the Louisiana State University Health Science Center. He had an early passion for HIV care and technology, which lead him to move to San Francisco where he received his M.S.N. (nurse practitioner) and Ph.D. from the University of California, San Francisco. He geeks out over technologies that connect clients to their health and the development of nurse-delivered community based care. He leads in Health Care 3.0, which supports nurses practicing to the fullest extent of their license and taking a client-centered approach to remove traditional barriers to accessing health care.

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!
