Positive Care Clinic

The Positive Care Clinic is designed to be a "one stop shop" for our clients seeking HIV, AIDS and Hepatitis C care. We work closely with people to give them the information and care they need to manage their health. 

The clinic is staffed by an interdisciplinary team that includes Infectious Diseases Specialists, Registered Nurses, Social Worker, Dietitian Pharmacist and Administrative Support.

The Positive Care Clinic provides individual assessment and follow-up care, nutrition and medication counselling, onsite laboratory work (blood work), a retail pharmacy and education opportunities. Services are fully funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health (OHIP).
