The Center for Special Studies in Pediatric HIV Disease at the NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Center for Children's Health is a kid-friendly, comprehensive care center for children and adolescents infected with HIV. Our multidisciplinary care team is comprised of physicians, advanced nurses, social workers, and other healthcare professionals specially trained in caring for children and teens. One of the first Centers funded by the National Institute on Child Health and Human Development to participate in multi-centered clinical trials, we provide care for 10% of New York City's pediatric/adolescent HIV/AIDS population.
