Getting to Zero: Eliminating Pediatric HIV in the State of Illinois

In 1991, Doctors Pat Garcia and Michelle Till developed one of the first Women’s HIV Programs in the country to address the unique needs of this population. A critical segment of the population is HIV-positive expectant mothers, so this innovative program was tailored to provide the necessary support to treat these moms-to-be and to bring their babies into the world free of the HIV virus. Today, over twenty years later, the Women’s HIV Program at the Infectious Disease Center at Northwestern Memorial Hospital is directed by Dr. Garcia along with Dr. Sarah Sutton, who lead a dedicated team of multi-disciplinary professionals to provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to the HIV treatment of women.
