Dr. Averbuch Diana
In the past 15 years, Hadassah has been operating a pediatric AIDS center, which today treats 37 children living and growing up with HIV. We also treat dozens of babies born to HIV carrying mothers in order to prevent them from being infected with the virus. Our center is unique in Israel, since it is a multi-disciplinary center and it operates within a regular pediatric outpatient clinic.
AIDS has completely changed in the past few years, and from a terminal disease it has become to be a disease of asymptomatic carriers. The children and adolescents can stay healthy for many years, but during that time they have to recieve daily medical treatment and deal with many difficulties. Children with AIDS, as opposed to children with other chronic diseases, don't have a public support system, and our center is the only source of support for these children and their families. We do our best to make their lives and their families' lives as normal and happy as possible, so the children will grow up and mature properly, prepared for the adult world.
