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: Evaluating an Online Health Service
Internet-based testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is a relatively new approach to STI testing. GetCheckedOnline has been developed to meet a growing need for easier access to STI testing in BC. The BCCDC has piloted GetCheckedOnline in select communities around British Columbia to evaluate its success and is now hoping to expand to other areas of the province.
