Our HIV Programs exist to ensure that the most underserved people living with HIV in San Francisco receive the compassionate support they need to manage all aspects of their health.

Our program offers non-judgmental, harm-reduction based, free support services to people living with HIV, including client advocacy, care navigation, emotional support, and health education.

Specifically, our continuum of services are designed to provide:

  • Knowledge about HIV disease and treatment, and how to enhance health outcomes and increase quality of life, based on the latest medical research and health information.
  • Client Advocacy to assist navigation through the health care system.
  • Emotional and practical support through the Drop-in Service Center, peer support groups, individual health counseling, and Shanti Peer Support Volunteers.
  • Health-enhancement and community building workshops that support clients in addressing the biological, psychological, and social issues that can impact overall health and quality of life.

For more information, contact Eric Sutter, Director of HIV Programs at (415) 674-4754 or via email.
