My name is Sumiko Saulson. I am walking for my former fiance Greg Hug who passed away May 26, 2017. Greg was out, proud, bisexual, and HIV+. He was homeless and an addict and the type of person that Ward 86 and the new POP-UP clinic would have helped.
AIDSWalk is proud to announce that Ward 86 and its new POP-UP clinic are co-beneficiaries of this year’s AIDS Walk San Francisco.
As the country’s first dedicated AIDS clinic, Ward 86 at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital has been a trailblazer since the earliest days of the epidemic. Now, recognizing that homeless and unstably housed individuals living with HIV in San Francisco need dedicated and unique clinical services, Ward 86 has launched its HIV POP-UP (Positive-health Onsite Program for Unstably-housed Populations) clinic—designed to provide urgently needed flexible, low-barrier and comprehensive medical care for this community.
Ward 86’s POP-UP clinic joins PRC and Project Open Hand as our lead co-beneficiaries for this year’s Walk. Other recipients of major AIDS Walk funding include the National AIDS Memorial, AIDS Legal Referral Panel, and dozens of other AIDS service, research, and education organizations throughout the Bay Area.
