Caring for Lives the Community
For over twenty years, the Positive Health Program has been an international model of compassionate health care for HIV/AIDS patients. One of the programs we fund is BAPAC. Bay Area Perinatal AIDS Center (BAPAC) continues to prevent perinatal HIV. The last case of perinatal HIV transmission at San Francisco General Hospital Medical Center was in 1999. In that case, the mother had refused HIV testing during pregnancy and only discovered her HIV status several months after delivery when her baby became ill. The last case of perinatal HIV transmission in a woman engaged in care at BAPAC was in 1995.
