FHCSD provides increased knowledge and awareness of viral hepatitis and related services among San Diego’s MSM and IDU communities, as well as to other organization’s HIV/STD prevention personnel. This is done to increase or maintain their knowledge of hepatitis prevention, treatment, and local resources.

Viral hepatitis awareness, education and prevention messages are reinforced through distinct social marketing campaigns developed exclusively for MSM and IDUs. Such campaigns are disseminated in areas and venues frequented by the MSM and the IDU communities.

FHCSD provides hepatitis A and B vaccines at low or no cost, as well as HIV/STD screening and testing through its Tuesday night clinic, which specifically serves the MSM and transgender populations in San Diego.

Safe Point San Diego (SPSD) is a program of FHCSD. It provides education and prevention services to IDUs, as well as their partners. SPSD provides clean syringe exchange in designated areas of San Diego, as well as education and prevention through a harm reduction model. Referrals are also provided for low or no cost hepatitis A and hepatitis B vaccines, as well as hepatitis C testing and/or other services that the participant might need.
