Family Clinic

Since 1988, Family Clinic at Children's of Alabama has served thousands of Families who are infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

HIV continues to disproportionately affect the African-American community, and women and children—particularly those living in impoverished, resource-limited circumstances—are those most likely to seek our services.

As one of only three HIV programs in our state with an emphasis on families, The Family Clinic serves many HIV-positive pregnant women, adolescents, pediatric patients and their affected family members throughout Alabama.

Our mission is to provide the most advanced medical care and comprehensive supportive care to HIV-infected clients and to their HIV-affected family members. Services are multi-disciplinary, family-centered and culturally appropriate and are provided regardless of financial means or medical insurance status.

Our clinical services, which are tailored to each individual client and their family, include:

  • Medical management
  • Pediatric, adolescent and adult mental health
