Many of the people who come here have had lives marked by trauma and neglect. They have often been rejected by family, friends and society.
Challenged by HIV/AIDS, addiction or mental illness – and in many cases, all three – as well as the related illnesses that plague those with compromised immunity, they turn to us for the support they need.
From the Centre’s inception, our innovative model of care has been improving the health of people with HIV/AIDS. Studies show it reduces their use of hospital beds and improves their quality of life.
We play a vital role in ensuring people have access to HIV/AIDS treatment – highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART) – that lengthens lives and helps prevent further transmission of the HIV virus.
