AIDS/HIV (Women and Children)

Patient Care

Nevada Care Program Team

The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine's Nevada Care Program works to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission and provide comprehensive care to children infected with HIV.

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.
