HepCBC is an umbrella organization comprising a variety of autonomous organisations, each of which is dedicated to educating and advocating for those infected and affected by HCV. Currently these are: ANKORS (Nelson), ARC (Kelowna), Positive Living North West (Smithers), Coast Garibaldi Health (Sunshine Coast), Comox Valley Community Health, Northern Interior Health (Prince George), HepTalk (Chiliwack), Victoria Persons with AIDS, Trail Support Group, Princeton Support Group, HepCure (Armstrong), Mission Support Group, Hepatitis C Foundation of Quebec, HepSEE (Winnipeg), and Action Addiction Services (Sechelt). HepCBC provides information, education and support to people infected with Hep C as well as to the organizations caring for them. HepCBC is the home of the hepc.bull, and the HepCAN list. HepCBC also distributes and updates the FAQ and other materials. HepCBC maintains the most comprehensive community co-infection library on Vancouver Island, and one of the best in the province of British Columbia. Full text access to major medical journals and other services are available to member organizations.
