Why Choose Children's Hospital for Pediatric & Adolescent HIV/AIDS Care
Our HIV/AIDS team works one-on-one with patients to provide a customized plan for noninvasive, invasive, laboratory, and outpatient services.
- Collaborative care
We work with other clinics and programs within the Division of Infectious Diseases to ensure HIV-infected children get the best possible care. Your child will receive treatment from experienced doctors, residents, fellows and nurses who are on the leading edge of HIV/AIDS research.
- Comprehensive care
Our HIV clinic is also linked to the Comprehensive Care Center to provide superior care for pregnant HIV-infected mothers. With proper care, the risk of a child with an HIV-positive mother becoming infected is rare. However, we carefully follow these children until their status is determined.
Tests, Treatments and Services

- Immunizations (vaccines)
