UCSD Will Open Student-Run Health Clinic In Tijuana

As one of the university faculty behind this initiative, I can assure you that almost all the resources being used to support this clinic are donated. Additionally, there already IS an American community being supported by a similar program by UCSD, which is a student-run free clinic in San Diego. The San Diego clinic was part of the inspiration for the clinic in TJ. Finally, the San Diego-Tijuana border has a large shared community; the health problems in Tijuana (like HIV and TB) have a direct, tangible impact on health problems in San Diego.
