This survey reports on 13 free clinics in Ann Arbor, Minneapolis, Baltimore, Washington, D. C., Somerville (Mass.), New Orleans, and Metropolitan Los Angeles. It defines free clinics and notes various types, such as street clinics, neighborhood free clinics, women's free clinics, youth clinics and sponsored clinics. A short history and philosophy of free clinics is presented along with the functional aspects such as facilities, record systems, and types of services provided. The survey also discusses funding of free clinics and makes recommendations for action for free clinics in the future. Copies of several issues of a newsletter called People's Free Medical Clinic are included in this article but are available only in hard copy. (EK)
