The BC Centre for Disease Control along with Island Health, and LifeLabs are expanding the pilot program of Get Checked Online to the community of Duncan.
The service offers easy and confidential testing on-line for sexually transmitted infections, HIV and hepatitis C.
Sophie Bannar-Martin, regional manager of Stop HIV and Bloodborne Disease for Island Health says the test is a confidential, convenient alternative for those who would like to test more often or who find it difficult to visit a clinic for testing…..
The service is expanding to Duncan, in part, Banner-Martin says because it’s a more rural region with fewer opportunities for testing than some other central island communities.
