Health Frontiers in Tijuana

Welcome to Health Frontiers in Tijuana

The UCSD Health Frontiers in Tijuana Student-run Free Clinic (HFiT) is located in Tijuana's Zona Centro, an area where drug use and sex work are pervasive and hundreds of deportees and homeless live. HFiT is the product of a true, binational partnership between the UCSD Global Health Program, the Universidad Autonoma de Baja California School of Medicine (UABC), and Desayunador Salesiano "Padre Chava", a community grass roots organization in Tijuana. HFiT provides accessible, quality healthcare for the underserved in Tijuana's Zona Norte in a respectful environment where students, health professionals, patients, and community members from the border region learn from one another.
