    “Two Vancouver pharmacies will soon offer customers free HIV tests that will provide results on the spot in less than five minutes.

    Pharmacists at the Medicine Shoppe drugstores have been trained by HIV nurses from Vancouver Coastal Health and Providence Health Care to provide testing as part of a year-long pilot project.”

    “The pilot project will determine whether HIV testing in pharmacies can complement existing programs at community testing sites, hospitals, walk-in clinics and through family physicians.” http://www.ctvnews.ca/health/free-hiv-testing-at-2-vancouver-pharmacies-as-part-of-pilot-project-1.1938396

    The two pharmacies are NOT in the West End’s Gay Village nor in the Downtown East Side but in a mostly residential area around 41st and Knight on Vancouver’s East Side.
