Historical Note

Founded in 1972 in San Francisco, and guided by the principle that "health care is a right, not a privilege," the NFCC coordinated the disbursement of Federal grants to a nationwide urban network of free community clinics serving underprivileged clients. Treatment for drug abuse, at the time a practice not widely studied by the medical profession, was a particular focus for many of these clinics.
