Treating chronic infectious diseases is more than just prescribing pills.
As one of the top ten programs in the world to engage and provide tailored care to marginalized communities, our vision at the Vancouver Infectious Diseases Centre (VIDC) is to use healthcare to promote long-term patient engagement as an agent for social change for the marginalized population.
Servicing the Vancouver Downtown East Side and the interior areas of Vancouver, VIDC seeks to engage the missing HCV and HIV thousands in BC, link them into care and treat them under a multidisciplinary setting with our "Four-Legged Chair" model.
Engage. Treat. Engage. Treat. Engage...
is the guiding principle behind everything we do. Through engaging with our patients, we are able to provide them with detailed and individualized care plans that support them through the treatment process and beyond.
Our services are also available in French through the Center Médical Bilingue de Vancouver (CMBV).
