Hepatitis C and HIV Care
The VIDC actively seeks out the missing Hepatitis C (HCV) and HIV thousands through our Community Pop-up Clinics in the Vancouver Downtown East Side and the interior areas of Vancouver.
We do more than just prescribe treatment medication - we value maintaining patient engagement. With the VIDC-innovated "Four-Legged Chair" model, we provide tailored, multidisciplinary care that addresses the medical, psychological, addiction-related and social needs of each patient.
From diagnosis, starting treatment to long-term follow up, let us take you through an example of HCV / HIV care at VIDC.
The clinical services provided at VIDC are aimed to provide long term care that will re-engage marginalized populations with the healthcare system.
Each patient is treated with a detailed and individualized care plan. The VIDC team collaborates with other health care providers to complement and supplement the care to address our patients’ medical, psychological, social and financial needs.
