One call into the Program links a patient to everything they need.
The Manitoba HIV Program is an all-inclusive resource for care and support.
We work to remove all barriers that people living with HIV might experience by creating partnerships with appropriate care providers in the Province. This ensures all clients receive seamless treatment options and high quality care, regardless of where they may live in Manitoba.
We are the portal for care – we provide total support.
What We Do
The Manitoba HIV Program works with primary care providers throughout the City of Winnipeg and the Province of Manitoba to:
- Encourage and support routine HIV testing – early diagnosis is key to reducing rates of HIV transmission and improving health outcomes
- Help link individuals requiring care and support to services, and/or provide consultation, education and resources to primary care providers in Manitoba
- Monitor and support access to the broad range of HIV-related primary care, treatment and support services to individuals in Manitoba
- Support sustainable, integrated planning, collaboration and program reporting
The Manitoba HIV Program provides support to approximately 1400 people living with HIV across the province. The Program has two Winnipeg-based sites: Nine Circles Community Health Centre and the Health Sciences Centre outpatient clinic, and one site in the Prairie Mountain Health Region, 7th Street Health Access in Brandon.
The Manitoba HIV Program employs a variety of strategies, carried out by an inter-disciplinary, professional care team to help our clients achieve positive health outcomes.
