Mayor's Message

“Over the past three decades, San Francisco has made significant progress toward reducing the number of new HIV infections each year, and improving the available services for people living with HIV. We also know that some segments of our population still suffer disproportionately high rates of HIV infections. As Mayor, I remain committed to our goal of Getting to Zero, which will take hard work.”

London Breed
Mayor of San Francisco

Community Leadership Messages

"We would not be where we are without the leadership of the department of health."

Jeff Sheehy
UCSF San Francisco AIDS Research Institute

"Boldness’ means we speak up in the face of doubt and adversity. We did that in the 1980s, when the HIV epidemic first appeared. We did that in 2010, when we were the first to recommend treatment for all persons living with HIV. We’re doing it now, with the current research and studies we have toward finding a cure, with vaccine research, and being at the forefront of PrEP."

Diane Havlir, MD
Professor of Medicine
UCSF School of Medicine

"Speaking out about the link between HIV/AIDS and its social drivers – housing, mental illness and substance abuse – will be crucial as a part of our work to get to zero HIV infections, zero HIV deaths, and zero HIV stigma."

Austin Padilla
Founding Member
Getting to Zero – San Francisco

"People ask us what the ‘special sauce’ is that accounts for San Francisco’s success against HIV. It’s the full engagement of all segments of society -- activists, providers, researchers, and the SF government – all working toward a common goal."

Susan Buchbinder, MD
Director, Bridge HIV, San Francisco Department of Public Health
Clinical Professor, Medicine and Epidemiology

"We have made tremendous progress in HIV prevention and treatment, but now is not the time to let up on our efforts and declare victory… With a little more time, effort, resources, and teamwork, we can fully realize the benefits of these highly effective prevention and treatment tools and be the first city to get to zero."

Barbara Garcia
Director of Health
San Francisco Department of Public Health

"The devastating impact of HIV continues to spread around the world despite access to treatment, care and support. It’s imperative that we continue to research new ways to prevent HIV infection."

Robert Grant, MD, MPH
Chief Medical Officer
San Francisco AIDS Foundation

"Our work is not done until the disparities among vulnerable populations living with or at risk for HIV are eliminated."

Dana Van Gorder
Executive Director
Project Inform

"We don't believe in doing things top-down here," said Scott Weiner, a member of the city's Board of Supervisors or city council. "The reason San Francisco has had so much success is not because city government saying 'this is what we’re going to do,' but because of an amazing coalition of community-based advocates."

Scott Weiner
San Francisco Board of Supervisors and City Council

"To the extent San Francisco has been a sanctuary for so many different people and issues, I think that we should aim to be a sanctuary where there are no new HIV/AIDS infections here in San Francisco."

David Campos
San Francisco Board of Supervisors and City Council

"I'm involved with Getting To Zero because achieving the three goals of GTZ will save and transform the lives of thousands of San Franciscans."

Chip Supanich
HIV Community Planning Council and Shanti

"Getting to Zero is also a call to action for health equity in HIV prevention, care, and treatment for all of our communities."
