Who We Are

BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC): Clinical Prevention Services

GetCheckedOnline is a service provided by the Clinical Prevention Services Division at the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), as part of the Provincial Health Services Authority.  The BC Centre for Disease Control is located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Clinical Prevention Services provides leadership for the treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STI) and HIV, and supports BC-wide efforts to control STI and HIV.  

We operate two STI clinics in Vancouver and provide outreach clinical and prevention services in the Lower Mainland, community education programs, and consultation services for BC health care providers on STI management.

GetCheckedOnline: Piloting an Online Health Service

Internet-based testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is a new approach to STI testing. GetCheckedOnline has been developed to meet a growing need for easier access to STI testing in BC.  The BCCDC is piloting this service in select communities in British Columbia to see how well it works, and hopes to expand the service to other areas of the province.
