The San Francisco Department of Public Health is encouraging those who are sexually active to talk to their healthcare provider and partners about sexual health, and test regularly for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.
The annual report shows a slight decline in HIV infections in San Francisco, though disparities exist.
The City continues to be a leader in linkage to care, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) uptake, and
HIV status awareness.
Health Officers from the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Benito, San Francisco, San Mateo, Solano, Sonoma, and the city of Berkeley encourage the public to take these easy steps to protect themselves and others this holiday season.
