AIDS Vancouver Island (AVI) is a community-based AIDS Service Organization (ASO). We have offices in the communities of Greater Victoria, Nanaimo, the Comox Valley, and Campbell River. Our catchment area includes all of the Gulf Islands.
At AIDS Vancouver Island we provide education, advocacy and support clients. AVI provides education and prevention information to schools, the broader community and target populations. Evidence demonstrates that comprehensive prevention programs can help to effectively contain HIV, hepatitis C, and other communicable diseases.
AIDS Vancouver Island provides integrated services to individuals with HIV/AIDS and/or hepatitis C, tuberculosis and other communicable diseases.
AIDS Vancouver Island’s effectiveness is derived from our role in the community and our connections with the populations most infected by, and at risk of, contracting HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, and other communicable diseases. Throughout our large volunteer base and the community partnerships we have forged, we effectively target and educate difficult-to-reach populations. AIDS Vancouver Island is a vital component of the total effort against HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C and other communicable diseases.
