PEDIATRIC AIDS CHICAGO PREVENTION INITIATIVE RECEIVES $19,000 FROM CHICAGO FOUNDATION FOR WOMEN

Chicago Foundation for Women awards more than half a million dollars to local nonprofit programs to improve women and girls’ access to health and health information, and ensure they remain free from violence.

WHAT:

  • Pediatric AIDS Chicago Prevention Initiative (PACPI) was awarded $19,000 for their Perinatal Enhanced Case Management program from Chicago Foundation for Women’s Health portfolio.
  • The Spring 2016 cycle at Chicago Foundation for Women awarded $731,712 in grants to 67 Chicagoland programs.
  • One of three key issue areas for Chicago Foundation for Women, the Health portfolio works with leading nonprofit and community-centered programs to ensure women and girls have access to health information and quality health care.
  • PACPI’s Perinatal Enhanced Case Management program intends to help vulnerable pregnant women who are living with HIV to have healthy newborns who are HIV-negative and establish a strong connection to a system of care for each mother and infant pair.

WHO:

PACPI works to eliminate pediatric AIDS and reduce transmission of the virus from mothers to their children in Illinois. PACPI collaborates with community-based organizations and public and private institutions to create a Safety Net of Prevention so that no pregnant woman living with HIV or infant exposed to HIV falls through the cracks for care and treatment.
