HIV/AIDS Program

Contact the Florida Department of Health

The Pediatric HIV/AIDS Program provides services to babies, children, teens and youth, ages 0 through 20 years old who have been exposed to or diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.

Through the CMS Plan, eligible children can receive a variety of services to help promote and improve healthy lifestyles and living with HIV/AIDS including:

  • Medical evaluations and treatment;
  • Social services;
  • Care coordination; and
  • Nutritional counseling. 

Educational programs are available to children and their families to learn more about HIV/AIDS and issues specifically related to children and families whose lives have been touched by HIV/AIDS.

These services are provided by a network of pediatric infectious disease specialists and referral centers, as well as community-based clinics, around the state. The HIV/AIDS Referral Centers are located in Gainesville, Jacksonville, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami, with satellite clinics at ten additional locations throughout Florida.
