HIV/AIDS Treatment Center
UCSF’s Pediatric HIV/AIDS Treatment Center provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluations and treatment for infants, children and young adults with known or suspected HIV infection, AIDS or AIDS-related symptoms.
Since 1986, our goal has been to optimize daily wellness and enhance long-term outcomes for our patients by supporting each child’s medical, psychological, social and emotional development, from infancy to adulthood. We coordinate the many aspects of care that may be needed, including neuropsychological evaluations, nutritional assessments and dental exams. Plus, we keep the whole support system in mind and offer educational resources and support services to address the needs of the entire family.
We also provide prenatal counseling and planning for pregnant people living with HIV. This includes breastfeeding or chestfeeding support for parents, as well as testing and treatment for their newborns.
