The "Wisconsin Primary Care Support Network has received a three-year, $2.5 million award to continue providing care services for pregnant women with HIV and their infants in Wisconsin, youth with HIV in Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan, individuals ages 19–24 with HIV in southeastern Wisconsin who are at high risk for nonadherence to medical care, and women in northeastern and southeastern Wisconsin who have risk factors that complicate engaging in medical care. Dr. Peter Havens, professor of pediatric infectious diseases and researcher with the Research Institute as well as program director for the HIV Clinic at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, is the project director.
