HIV/AIDS Group Tenderloin Health in San Francisco to Close
Tenderloin Health, a San Francisco–based organization that provides HIV/AIDS services and prevention to the city’s poor and homeless, will close because of financial pressure, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. In 2006, the Tenderloin AIDS Resource Center merged with the Continuum HIV Day Services to create Tenderloin Health. However, existing debt and the loss of federal money contributed to the decision to close. Tenderloin Health’s 250 medical clinic patients, 500 dental patients, 750 housing clients and 1,400 individuals who require prevention and testing services each year will be connected with new service providers before it closes in the coming months.
