Needs Assessment

VPWAS is pleased to announce that we have received a Community Grant from the Victoria Foundation to develop a program of Complementary Health Care Services for People Living with HIV and/or Hepatitis C.

The program will be a mix of services offered in our office and services offered in the community at a discount or special rate.
