Community Health Centre Specializing in HIV Prevention and Care

Nine Circles Mission Statement

Nine Circles Community Health Centre, with expertise in the care and treatment of HIV, Hepatitis C and other sexually transmitted infections, delivers comprehensive primary care, social support, education and prevention services – creating healthier communities for Manitobans.

Core Values

Client Centred

Clients and care providers make decisions about care together. Services recognize the impact of HIV/STBBIs (sexually transmitted and blood borne infections) and the social stigma and exclusion related to HIV.

Developed in Partnership

Planning, policy development and evaluation are done in collaboration with the community, including affected groups, community agencies, government and especially clients.

Culturally Safe

Staff interacts with clients in a way that those who receive care define it, recognizing the importance of lifestyle, culture and religion and tackling the adverse impact of poverty, social exclusion and stigma.

Integrated

All activities are linked with each other and with other community services, drawing on the knowledge and skills of health and social care professionals across a multi-disciplinary team.

Outcome Oriented

Each program is guided by a work plan linked with the long-term strategic objectives of the organization. Services and programs are evaluated and measured based on achievable and measurable objectives.
