Vancouver, British Columbia-based Dr. Peter Centre, an HIV/AIDS treatment and care organization, recently began a $5.8 million expansion project that will allow the organization to expand its on-site housing for HIV-positive people from 10 to 24 individuals and provide medical care, meal services, support groups, and other services to as many as 1,700 clients each month, the Vancouver Sun reports. The center, named after Peter Jepson-Young, a health care provider who cared for people with HIV/AIDS and who died of AIDS-related causes a decade ago, is currently housed in rental space and can serve a maximum of about 1,000 clients per month.
