SF General Hospital launches hotline for clinicians who prescribe HIV drug
San Francisco Examiner

In 1993, San Francisco General Hospital established a first-of-its-kind hotline for clinicians nationwide seeking advice in managing HIV and AIDS treatments.

More than two decades later, the hospital on Monday launched the first phone-based consultation service in the U.S. for health care workers who prescribe PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis), a medication that can prevent HIV, said Dr. Ron Goldschmidt, a UC San Francisco professor of family and community medicine at General Hospital.
