The East Toronto Hepatitis C Program is a partnership between South Riverdale Community Health Centre, Regent Park Community Health Centre and Sherbourne Health Centre. It was established in 2006 to assist people living with Hep C, who primarily use drugs and or alcohol and or have mental health issues/illness and or HIV/HCV Co-infection and who have had difficult accessing treatment and care. It is a multidisciplinary program offering medical care, treatment, support and education all under one roof. We work in a holistic and harm reduction framework.
The program is centered around group support. People attend a weekly group focused on information about HEP C, treatment and healthy living. TTC and food are offered. The group is a closed group and runs on a 16 week to 18 week cycle. The Hep C Clinic runs at the same time.
