Description

The UCSF School of Nursing's mission is to educate diverse health leaders, conduct research, advance nursing and interprofessional practice, and provide public service with a focus on promoting health quality and equity.

The International Center for HIV/AIDS Research and Clinical Training in Nursing is an inter-departmental and multi-disciplinary effort, committed to research, education, and care of persons with HIV. Founded in 1991, the Center focuses on nursing care for people at risk for and infected with HIV across all health care and community settings.

In 1994, the Center was recognized as the Nursing component of the UCSF AIDS Clinical Research Center. That same year, it became affiliated with the Pacific AIDS Education Training Centers (Ryan White Care Act). The Center is related to I-TECH, International Training and Education Center for Health, is affiliated with the World Health Organization's Collaborating Centers, and is a component of the UCSF AIDS Research Institute (ARI).

The mission of the Center is to enhance optimal health and quality of care for people living with, at risk for and affected by HIV/AIDS through nursing leadership in research, clinical practice and education.
