  SAN GALLICANO HOSPITAL
The IRCCS - San Gallicano Hospital (SGH) is part of the "Istituti Fisioterapici Ospitalieri" (IFO) (http://www.ifo.it/). The SGH is an ISO 9001-certified, nonprofit, public health institution.

It was founded in 1725 with the original mission of providing health care to pilgrims entering Rome. The clinical and laboratory activities at SGH are traditionally focused on neoplastic and immunologic disorders of the skin, as well as on the diagnosis, characterization and care of sexually-transmitted diseases. A particular focus is on HIV infection. In addition, the SGH provides basic and specialized health care to Italy's different immigrant populations. Specifically, the SGH focuses on preventing and treating the major diseases of poverty (i.e., AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria).

Since 1996, the SGH has provided linguistic-cultural mediators. These mediators welcome foreign patients in their native language, and they facilitate cultural and interpretative understanding for diagnosis and therapy. The main languages spoken by linguistic-cultural mediators are: French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Kurd, Lingala, Swahili, Tigrigna, Amharic, Filipino (Tagalong), Tamil, Bangladeshi, Serbo-Croatian, Bulgarian, Polish, Russian, Rumanian and Albanian.

The social research activities of the SGH are focused on investigating appropriate cultural tools needed to provide effective health care. Particular emphasis is placed on the specific needs of immigrant populations. Activities include clinical investigation plus social and behavioral assessment to provide the correct set of tools needed for a proper, ethical and effective cultural mediation. These activities are essential to any clinical platform that forsees a multiethnic context.

The SGH hosts the Core Virology and Immunology Lab for Tat-based vaccine clinical trials.
