THE CHILDREN’S DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT CENTER AWARDS $1.8 MILLION IN GRANTS IN SUPPORT OF ITS COMPREHENSIVE FAMILY AIDS PROGRAM

August 1, 2022 – The Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center (CDTC) received a grant totaling $1,814,131 from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for its Comprehensive Family AIDS Program (CFAP).

CFAP provides primary care, specialized HIV medical care, medical case management and supportive services to approximately 2,000 HIV/AIDS infected and affected women, infants, children and adolescents in Broward County.

“We are very proud of our comprehensive Family AIDS program, which offers a holistic, family-centered approach to health care and clearly addresses the needs of people living with HIV or AIDS and their families,” said Ana Calderon Randazzo, Ph.D ., Managing Director of the Children’s Diagnosis and Treatment Center. “It has had a tremendous impact on our community, achieving a zero percent transmission rate from mother to baby over the past five years.”

After more than 30 years of service to the community, CDTC’s Comprehensive Family AIDS Program has successfully ministered to generations of many families. Advances in treatment protocols coupled with the program’s easy access to nursing and social services have proven successful in helping clients go undetectable, eliminating the possibility of transmission and women and children living with HIV , a healthier and more active life is made possible.

“Our team at CDTC is privileged to continue our work in fighting the HIV epidemic,” said Lisa-Gaye Robinson, CFAP Medical Director, MD MPH. “Improvements in medicines over the decades have enabled people living with HIV to live long and healthy lives. We have come this far to enable people living with HIV to live a healthy, long life. But there is still so much to do to stop the spread in our community and remove the stigma.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 have at least one HIV test as part of their routine healthcare.
