Run by a team of passionate health professionals, the mobile Kombi Clinic, is a one-stop-shop for hepatitis C testing, treatment, and information.
Mim said the clinic is unique and different to other services because it brings medical care directly to people who are most vulnerable, enabling them to easily access treatment.
“The Kombi Clinic is a team of passionate people who want to eliminate hepatitis C by 2030. Our patients often haven’t spoken to anyone about their hep-C status and we offer them a safe environment and the opportunity to seek treatment free of judgement,” said Mim.
“We go to areas in the community helping people that we’ve identified that are of great need, this could be those who are disenfranchised or homeless, and we work in different locations like around alcohol and drug services as well as on the street.”
Mim said they plan on using the prize money towards new technology which does point-of-care testing, enabling on the spot diagnosis.
