CALIFORNIA: UCSF Launching Mobile HIV Testing Van




 

San Francisco Examiner (06.26.2013)

University of California San Francisco’s Allied Health Project will launch the first mobile testing center in the city in anticipation of National HIV Testing Day on January 27. The van will make it easier for gay men and men who have sex with men to get tested. The mobile van is an extension of the health project’s testing program, which started in 1985. The Health Project conducts HIV testing any day of the week at any time, and it provides referrals to those who are newly diagnosed positive.
