The goal of our pediatric HIV care program is to strengthen the community by equipping families with tools to take care of their HIV+ children. Family members of children enrolled are provided with training in caring for an HIV+ child, and education in HIV prevention. This leads to an improvement in the health of the children, prevention of HIV, and reduction in stigma associated with HIV.
