St. James Infirmary (SJI), located in San Francisco, California, is a peer-based Occupational Health and Safety clinic for sex workers of all genders and their families, founded in 1999. In 2003, SJI launched a venue-based sexually transmitted infection and HIV (STI/HIV) testing program at the Nob Hill Cinema, a local male strip club, and at the Market Street Cinema and Lusty Lady, two local female strip clubs. Every 4-6 months our sex worker peer-based staff arrange entrance to the clubs and offer individual risk reduction counseling (IRRC) and testing over the course of an evening.
