Center Helps Black HIVers

To help fill a void of HIV services for African-Americans in southeast San Francisco, the city has opened the Southeast Partnership for Health, a care center that offers services to residents of the city's Bayview, Visitation Valley, and Potrero Hill neighborhoods. A lack of health services is partly to blame for lower treatment rates among HIVers in those areas of San Francisco, according to city officials. AIDS survival rates also were lower in the three neighborhoods served by the new center. The new center is located at 1768 Newcomb St. and can be reached by telephone at (800) 311-5051.
