Some of the Things We Do:

  • Offer personal support (face-to-face, phone, email)
  • Prison Outreach: Toll-free line: 1-844-268-2118
  • Publish pamphlets wherever we see a gap (Ex: Baby Boomers and Patient Rights)
  • Distribute pamphlets and pamphlet holders in your local doctors’ offices, clinics, labs, immigrant and ethnic associations, Friendship Centres, etc.
  • Educate the public: After more than 20 years nonstop, we recently transitioned from publishing our monthly bulletin, the hepc.bull, into putting all of our news through our website hepcbc.ca, our Facebook site (hepcbc), and our You Tube Channel (hepcbc).
  • Update and publish Peppermint Patti’s FAQs. Long considered by many to be the best peer compendium on hepatitis C, the FAQs is updated regularly and available online (since 2000)
  • Put awareness ads on public transport throughout BC
  • Set up information tables and booths at community events
  • Participate in various organizations dedicated to curing hepatitis C
  • Actively engage municipal, provincial and national government in hepatitis C issues such as eliminating barriers to treatment access and broadening testing guidelines, as well as confronting stigma and discrimination.
