Borrego Health has two Specialty Care clinics offering a number of primary services targeted toward those in the LGBTQ+ community, as well as those in treatment for HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, PrEP & PEP, and the transgender community. We offer a variety of health services, including an in-house lab and in-house pharmacy. 100% of the profit generated in our pharmacy is put back into patient care and all services are offered in a confidential, supportive and non-judgmental environment. 

The Research Department at Borrego Health is involved in multiple research studies investigating new treatment protocols and advancements leading to improved health outcomes for our patients. All research activities, regardless of the source of support, are guided by the statement of ethical principles set forth by the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects: respect for persons, beneficence, and justice. 

They are currently enrolling volunteer participants in an OBESITY AND HEALTHY THINKING STUDY. This study proposes that treatment of abdominal obesity and related inflammation with daily injections of tesamorelin for six months will improve cognition in HIV+ individuals.
