Nearly 500 patients receiving care at the HIV Clinic at San Francisco General Hospital are Hispanic, and over a third of these are monolingual Spanish or have limited English proficiency. At our weekly HIV clinic focused on primarily Spanish speaking patients, we provide a welcoming environment with culturally and linguistically appropriate services, including:
- HIV primary care
- Mental health services
- Social support services, including housing and immigration assistance
- Care coordination with community case managers
- Health education and literacy
More intensive services including linkage to patient navigator assistance and more intensive case management are provided to La Clinica patients identified as particularly vulnerable or high risk, including those with a new diagnosis of HIV, newly engaged in care, CD4 cell counts of < 200 and/or active opportunistic infections. These patients are followed in our SALUD cohort (Securing Access for Latinos who are Underserved or Disabled).
