Using a testing van to promote testing and faster linkage to care
Kombi Clinic is a mobile outreach Hepatitis C clinic, operating in Brisbane, Australia. Kombi Clinic brings everything to the patient to provide an all-inclusive clinic. Rather than making patients navigate the complex health system we bring everything to them. Screening bloods and Fibroscans, doctors are able to diagnosis and follow up with patients where they are. At follow up appointments, patients requiring treatment have script written on the spot, they are able to then use this at their local community pharmacy. Kombi clinic visits locations with high prevalence of people who have/had injected drugs and also people that have poor access to health care. We turn up to venues such as Homeless shelters, drop in centres, drug addiction clinics and rough sleeping locations.
