As the largest Division in UC San Francisco's Department of Medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG), the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases & Global Medicine is a global leader in clinical care, research and education.
Its mission is to tend to all patients affected by infectious diseases, especially the vulnerable. Division members believe that ending the epidemics of devastating infectious diseases--such as HIV, malaria and TB--is achievable. The gains will yield more than health, including wellness, prosperity and social connectedness.
To reach these ambitious goals--and to combat the constant threat of infectious diseases--the clinicians, researchers and teachers of the Division of HIV, ID & Global Medicine strive to be powerful agents of change. They work locally to care for patients with HIV and other infectious diseases, and they work internationally to improve infectious disease prevention, care and community health. Beyond the clinics and laboratories, Division members train medical students, residents, fellows and other healthcare providers; collaborate with local, state and federal governments; and engage with community organizations, corporations and international policy-making agencies.
