About Us

Welcome to 360: The Positive Care Center at the University of California, San Francisco. 360, previously known as the PositiveHealth Practice at UCSF was created in 1984 to offer a range of high quality services in a single location to people living with HIV/AIDS.

History & Structure

360 is one of the oldest nonprofit HIV clinics in the U.S. We are the only UCSF HIV clinic available to provide high-quality care to HIV positive individuals, whether they are privately insured, uninsured, or marginally insured. 360 is known for its clinical HIV excellence and consistently ranks among the best in outpatient care in the national Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey.

360 originally had a partner program, Women’s HIV Program (now an independent entity), and a General Practice. In 2002 we added the Men of Color Program (MOCP). The MOCP is funded by the S.F. Department of Public Health to address the health needs of medically uninsured and underinsured men of color—particularly African American men—with HIV/AIDS in San Francisco.

The success of the MOCP has been outstanding, resulting in a collaboration with Bayview Hunters Point Foundation, Black Coalition on AIDS, Maxine Hall Health Center, Southeast Health Center, and Westside Community Services to provide care to African Americans in the southeast part of the city.

HIV and aging represents a growing area of our focus. The impact of issues related to aging such as cardiovascular disease, hormonal deficiencies, osteoporosis, and body changes in our patients (especially in gay men) is being explored.

We envision a future HIV Center of Excellence that houses institutes of HIV Health & African American men and women with HIV & Aging.

360 is a program of the AIDS Research Institute at UCSF (ARI), which coordinates all of the HIV/AIDS research, treatment, and prevention activities at UCSF. Combining the best basic science, bench-to-bedside research, behavioral studies, direct care services, and policy development, the ARI is one of the premier HIV/AIDS medical, education, and research institutions in the world.
