HIV Clinical Center of Excellence

A new target

In January 2007 the Romanian-American Children's Center (CCRA) had 485 patients under care. The difference between "children with HIV" and "adults infected with HIV has become increasingly vague, some patients find the Centre transferred to the adult section of the Infectious Diseases Hospital in Constanta (SBIC), and others desiring although to be under the care center had reached adulthood. While some psychosocial services can be transferred to hospital, full programs of the Center were not available for more than 800 people in Constanta. This led to the decision to open services to all HIV-positive patients and to transfer the program from transferring patients from the Center, a family program with both adults and children. Dr. Kline said: "I chose to extend the range of services to serve the entire range of ages, from infants to adults. We will continue to provide medical and psychosocial services for these individuals, but we will also address issues such as housing and job qualification, education and issues concerning marriage and family. "To illustrate this approach larger and more complex, Roman Children's Center American was renamed the Clinical Center of Excellence in December 2007 Roman. Center of Excellence is now offering all necessary services under one roof, including programs on infectious diseases, pulmonary diseases, gynecology and dental care, psychosocial and vocational counseling, social work, planning and support groups, and education for a healthy and independent lives . The center also continue to educate and train health professionals and develop a new research department. Providing the drugs will be further supported by the Ministry of Health and by donations from Abbott for all infectious diseases, while the Abbott Fund and other private donors will support the rest of the program. There have been many efforts to develop relationships with local authorities and hospitals to expand programs beyond the results and the central portal, and to promote this model of care nationally. So who is treated anti-HIV treatment receives a constant quality. The training, educational meetings and debates, and exchanges of good practice were also included in the program.

Baylor impact interventions will be sustainable if not accompanied by prevention, testing and treatment, all provided together and in an integrated fashion. The provision of education, prevention and treatment of HIV-infected strictly protected in any way the general population. So Baylor, in partnership with hospitals and county Public Health Authority (through a special initiative focused on HIV education and behavior change), supported the establishment of voluntary counseling and testing for HIV for the general population of two counties.
