The Victorian Infectious Diseases Service (VIDS) provides comprehensive services to patients with infectious diseases. 

We have a strong focus on links with public health, hospital-acquired infections and optimisation of antibiotic use.

VIDS provides a full range of infectious diseases services, with a special focus on:

VIDS operates a direct inpatient care ward at the RMH. We also run consultative services to patients being cared for by other RMH services. 

We run specialist clinic services by referral, including viral hepatitis, travel and tropical diseases, refugee and immigrant health, community acquired and health-care associated infections, HIV infection, and tuberculosis. VIDS is also involved in teaching medical students, junior doctors and specialist trainees.
