HELP SAVE 360: The Positive Care Center at UCSF
In June 2008, our program will be meeting at City Hall in hopes to get our program refunded. By signing our petition, you are helping us show how much our clinic, 360: The Positive Care Center at UCSF/The Men of Color Program is needed in San Francisco. 360: reflects the degrees in a circle - the full circle of care - to highlight our emphasis on comprehensive services for those living with HIV/AIDS. It also represents a journey from health to illness to health again for many of our patients. Importantly, 360 represents our wide view to all aspects of HIV/AIDS care and research that drive our commitment to develop innovative solutions to bringing all living with HIV/AIDS into optimal care and providing them the tools to stay in care. In 2002, the Men of Color Program (MOCP) was created to meet the treatment and prevention needs of men of color in San Francisco, particularly African American men, living with HIV/AIDS not in optimal medical care. The MOCP uses a comprehensive model of care that is culturally appropriate and population-specific involving coordinated outreach, health education, case management, and health care delivery. Our group of doctors, nurses, peer advocates, case managers, social workers, dietitians, and pharmacists provide a multidisciplinary approach to the overall wellness of our clients. Any man of color in the San Francisco area living with HIV/AIDS can get these services and high quality of care in a friendly, culturally sensitive place. Thank you all for your support!
