When our founder and owner, Zahid Somani, first started working as a new UofT Pharmacy graduate, there were very limited treatment options available to people newly diagnosed with HIV and AIDS. He recalls when they lost patients every week due to infections and lack of resources and information.

Today, together with his pharmacy team, Zahid is committed to providing compassionate care for HIV prevention and HIV treatment, trans health, and more, including co-pay support, patient advocacy and connection to care.

Come say hi to Zahid and our friendly teams at any of our locations. Happy ! ❤️

HIV | PrEP | PEP

The Village Pharmacy in the heart of Toronto’s Church-Wellesley Village is your best choice for HIV, PrEP and PEP meds.

Visit us online: www.thevillagepharmacy.ca and www.get-prep.com

Since 2001, The Village Pharmacy has built a reputation for friendly, compassionate and professional care you can trust. You’ll get your meds when you need them, expert counselling, help with insurance and payment coverage, and we even deliver HIV meds for free, Ontario-wide.

“The friendly and knowledgable staff have kept me coming back for years. I left another pharmacy because the service was terrible and found they weren't very appreciative of my business. Another reason I love this pharmacy is because they give back to the community. Their delivery service is also great for times when you're running low on your meds and can't make it in, even if you're out of the province.” - Google Review
