AIDS Vancouver exists to alleviate individual and collective vulnerability to HIV and AIDS through support, public education, and community based research.
About AIDS Vancouver
AIDS Vancouver plays a special role in providing quality health care to people affected by HIV/AIDS living in the Lower Mainland. It is an organization whose presence and continued strength is essential to the quality for life of this community and of each individual and family who draws on its services.
Well run and well managed, AIDS Vancouver opened its doors in 1983 as the first AIDS service organization in Canada and in response to the growing need for community health organizations to support individuals vulnerable to the epidemic.
Today, over 7,000 people from all over the world are annually accessing some form of service provided by AIDS Vancouver. AIDS Vancouver continues to respond to the ongoing changing and challenging health care environment of HIV/AIDS and is fully dedicated to grow and respond to meet the needs of the community we serve. AIDS Vancouver strives to keep our programming innovative and relevant.
