As part of the Victorian HIV Service, we have numerous in-hospital, outpatient and community services available to the HIV-affected community of metropolitan Melbourne, and throughout rural and regional Victoria.
We are heavily involved in clinical research, and our strong partnerships with researchers and the community enables us to ensure our patients have access to latest treatments and research trials.

The role of the VSS is to prevent overwhelming sepsis in people after splenectomy or a diagnosis of hyposplenism. This is done through education, immunisation and preventive antibiotics.
The VSS has registered more than 3000 people ranging from 3 weeks to 89 years of age. With the availability of new vaccines against pneumococcus and meningococcus, immunization regimes recommended for these individuals have had to be revised.
