Clinical Prevention Services

The Clinical Prevention Services Division is a team of clinical and public health experts focused on the delivery of health promotion, harm reduction, prevention and treatment services related to tuberculosis (TB), sexually transmitted infections (STI), HIV, hepatitis B and C (HBV, HCV), mental illness and misuse of substances. Our division has over 150 staff, researchers and trainees at any given time.

We aim to:

  • Provide culturally relevant, patient and family-centered community-based services, with continuous quality improvement to maintain the highest standards of care
  • Meaningfully engage communities using strengths, resiliency, trauma informed and equity-based approaches
  • Develop and scale-up innovative practices in public health and clinical care that make the best use of new evidence, tools, technologies and resources.
  • Effect public health best practice through policy advice, knowledge products, and training
  • Inform the planning, development and evaluation of programs, policies and health care services through surveillance, epidemiology, and research
  • Integrate our programs and services across these disease areas, in recognition of their inter-relatedness, common determinants, and population overlap 
Our focus is to serve the populations in BC most affected by these diseases, experiencing inequities in accessing services, and disadvantaged by the adverse social and structural factors that are ultimately responsible for facilitating these diseases. 

We are a provincial resource, supporting and partnering with many different stakeholders including the Ministry of Health, Regional Health Authorities, First Nations Health Authority, Yukon Government, federal agencies, clinical and public health practitioners, academic centres and researchers, community organization, and the public.

Our Division has 11 programs and services:

  • Harm Reduction Services
  • Hepatitis Services
