Get your healthcare through the SF Health Network

If you have Medi-Cal, you may be able to get care at one of our clinics.


Opioid Overdose Facts

Our work in the community is informed by harm reduction principles, which are proven to help save lives. For a long time, getting life-saving naloxone into the hands of people who use drugs has helped us weather the nationwide opioid crisis without an overall increase in overdose deaths. Fentanyl has changed this trend. A powerful opioid, fentanyl is hard to reverse when someone overdoses. It often requires many doses of naloxone. In the face of this challenge, DPH will continue expanding access to naloxone and to treatment. Learn more:

Black/African American Health Report

The Black/African American Health Initiative (B/AAHI) has issued its Report on the Health of Black/African Americans in San Francisco. Although San Franciscans are healthier than Americans in many other parts of the country, Black/African American (B/AA) San Franciscans, have persistently had poorer health than their fellow residents.

Based on the most recent data, Black and African American infants are five times more likely than White infants to die before their first birthday. This health disparity continues through adulthood. Life expectancy for Black/African Americans is the lowest of all race/ethnicities in San Francisco. A B/AA resident could expect to live 72 years nearly 10 years less than White, Asian, and Latino residents who can expect to live into their 80s.

To obtain a copy of the report or to get additional information about BAAHI and its activities, please email:
