Island Health has announced a pilot project where pharmacies in Victoria will be able to test for HIV.
“The best way to ensure early diagnosis of HIV is to make testing as easy as possible,” said Dr. Brendan Carr, CEO of Island Health. “By removing the barriers to taking an HIV test — especially by offering testing in places where people already encounter the health-care system — we can reduce the stigma associated by HIV.”
