We’ve been a global leader in HIV/AIDS treatment, prevention, research, and education since 1983.
At the Forefront
We’ve been here from the beginning, providing compassionate, innovative care based on our “all in” and “care for all” ethos. Today, our San Francisco Model has spread throughout the world, becoming the standard in HIV/AIDS care.
A Community of Care
Our Rapid ART Program Initiative for HIV Diagnoses (RAPID) serves as the lifeline linking our patients to our care centers. We’ve built an integrated HIV care model, in which community-based organizations work on site to help provide the care our patients need.

Getting to Zero
No New Infections, Stigma, or Deaths
San Francisco’s “Getting to Zero” Coalition aims to make San Francisco the first jurisdiction with zero new HIV infections, zero stigma, and zero deaths. The near-term goal is to reduce new transmissions and deaths by 90% by 2020.
Countdown to Zero
Cofounded by Dr. Diane Havlir, Chief of the Division of HIV/AIDS, in 2013, Getting to Zero takes a three-pronged approach:
3 – Prevent infection with the expansion of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in San Francisco
2 – Quickly deliver antiretroviral therapy as fast as possible to newly-diagnosed HIV-infected patients
1 – Keep patients in care to prolong health, wellness, and life
0 – No new HIV infections, stigma, deaths
Our expert team of physicians, counselors, and educators deliver a holistic, patient-centric approach to treating HIV/AIDS.

Keeping SF Babies HIV-free
Creating a world where HIV isn’t a barrier to sexual wellness or safe pregnancies, HIVE provides preconception (before pregnancy) and prenatal care to women and couples living with and affected by HIV (when one partner is HIV+ and the other is HIV-). We support you in having the sex life you want, and the family you want.
Since 2004, all babies in San Francisco have been free of HIV. Let’s keep it that way.
