Overcoming HIV one person at a time
Comprehensive, stigma-free care for our most frail citizens
Today, an estimated 7,271 British Columbians live with HIV/AIDS, and while many people have supports in place to help them cope, plenty do not.
This all-encompassing affliction drains the mind, body and soul. Add a history of mental illness, substance use disorder, lack of shelter - and life gets even worse.
The Dr. Peter Centre tackles this situation with its outstanding clinical care delivered daily with a stigma-free approach since 1997. Today, the Centre has emerged as one the world's most recognized care facilities for HIV/AIDS, sharing its best practices with agencies and governments across the country, and around the globe.
