Nevada Care Program

Department of Pediatrics: Las Vegas

NV Cares

The Nevada Care Program works to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission and provide comprehensive care to children infected and affected with HIV in Southern Nevada.

Our intervention is directed at women of child-bearing age who are HIV positive and who are or may become pregnant. Through clinical service, outreach and research, our goal is to eliminate mother-to-child HIV transmission and provide HIV/AIDS education to our community.

Since the Nevada Care Program began in 2005, there have been no documented cases of mother-to-child transmission of HIV. We will work with HIV/AIDS positive mothers to ensure they have a safe delivery and a healthy baby.

Contact us if you are planning to start a family or become pregnant.

Services for children

We offer primary care services for patients from birth to 21-years of age exposed or infected with HIV/AIDS. Other services we provide include:

  • testing and follow-up for infants who are born to mothers with HIV/AIDS;
  • immunizations, tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis, T-cell and viral load testing and other screening services;
  • referrals for specialty care such as dental care, nutrition and diet advice, and counseling.

Services for women

We also offer family planning and contraception counseling for women. Other services we provide include:

  • pregnancy consultations;
  • prenatal care;
  • referrals for specialty care such as obstetrics and gynecology, dental care, mental health, substance abuse and case management.

Health care insurance options

We accept most health care insurance plans. If you do not have insurance, we will help you apply for state-funded health coverage. The Nevada Care Program is funded by a Ryan White Part D Grant for patients with HIV/AIDS who do not qualify for other funding. We will assist you in obtaining services.
