Sanguen Health Centre is a Ministry of Health funded Hepatitis C agency who provides wrap around support to those experiencing high degrees of marginalization as a result of their substance use, mental health, homelessness and chronic poverty.
Headed by Dr. Chris Steingart our multidisciplinary team offers Hepatitis C nursing support, medical treatment for Hepatitis, primary care support, Peer support, Support Coordination and Outreach.
