Positive Health Program

 Positive Health Outreach Program

The Positive Health Outreach Program is a Fraser Health funded program. The program consists of two outreach workers who will meet with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community members living with HIV and/or Hep C.

There are many things can stand in the way of a person’s health and/or personal choice; poverty, addiction, housing, lack of support. Our objective is to introduce a model of care to professionals and clients that is culturally competent, while ensuring the community member connects to an appropriate medical team regarding med. adherence, medical support; testing, and bloodwork. Once primary needs such as clothing, food, shelter, and safety are addressed and the individual is stabilized, the community member can then focus on an action plan that relates to their social and medical health.

The Positive Health Outreach Program is a principles driven program that is rooted within a holistic model of care. Our services include culturally sensitive counselling, support, and referral to Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal services. The Program also supplies group facilitation, education, advocacy, and escorts. Our FRAFCA Team also meets for regular case managements to ensure an appropriate quality of service provision.

Our focus demographic is within the Fraser Health Region, but we will also meet clients within the Vancouver Coastal Health Region and the surrounding areas of the Lower Mainland.

Maintaining and promoting working relationships with various medical teams, and other service providers is a priority of the Positive Health Outreach Team, resulting in partnerships that will benefit client based care as well as community development.
The Positive Health Outreach Program looks forward to being a contributing member of our shared environment within the Fraser Region of the Lower Mainland. If there are any questions or comments please feel free to contact us at 604-595-1170.

Thank-you,
