San Francisco ExaminerUCSF launching mobile HIV testing van
June 26, 2013
Getting tested for HIV is becoming easier and easier.
In anticipation of National HIV Testing Day on Thursday, UC San Francisco's Allied Health Project is launching the first mobile testing center in The City.
The van will make it even easier for gay men and men who have sex with men to get tested and know their sexual history. Gay men are encouraged to get tested every six months.
The mobile van is an extension of the health project's testing program, which began in 1985 with San Francisco's first large-scale anonymous HIV counseling and testing program.
Allied Health Project offers HIV testing any day of the week and at any time. The program also provides referrals to newly diagnosed clients.
