The goal of the Children’s AIDS Foundation of Tampa Bay is to help children infected with HIV/AIDS realize a healthy and productive future. Our affiliation with the USF Pediatric Infectious Disease Program enables us to achieve this goal.
HIV infected children often deal with an overwhelming combination of problems. More than 80% of the children treated in the Tampa Bay area live below the poverty level. Most live with parents and/or siblings infected with the disease, forcing them to deal with unrelenting medical issues. Many have lost one or more family members to AIDS.
