Welcome to a safe and friendly place for the highest-quality, culturally sensitive HIV treatment and comprehensive care.

About the program

At the Men of Color Program (MOCP)/Black Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE), it’s all about you. We believe in listening to and working with our patients as partners and building trust, so you can achieve your best health and wellness.


Any HIV-positive man of color in the San Francisco area is welcome at MOCP for HIV treatment, general health care, mental health care and social support, sexual health care, health education, case management, and more. The BHCOE is also open to HIV-positive African-American men and women not in optimal care.


Whatever brings you to MOCP/BHCOE, you can expect the best care and treatment from providers who make you feel at home.

We created MOCP to engage HIV-positive men of color with long-term, optimal care and support in a culturally competent, patient-centered environment. We later became a founding member of the Black Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) to help engage and retain HIV-positive African-American men and women in San Francisco in comprehensive care and services. 


At UCSF 360, we are uniquely equipped to provide the treatment and tools to overcome barriers that contribute to HIV-related health disparities in disenfranchised populations.
