Children with AIDS
Dec 11, 1996

I am trying to find information on Children who have AIDS or have a family member who has AIDS. I need to find out the emotional and physical problems that they encounter every day in life.

Response from Rev. Pieters

I am not an expert on Pediatric AIDS, but there are several places you might look for further information. 1) Here at The Body, we have a section of articles about Children and AIDS. 2) Check out Loel Poor's photo exhibit here at The Body. Among these photographs are 3 or 4 photos of children with AIDS, with rather extensive commentary about them. 3) If you have any pediatric treatment questions, address them to Joel Gallant, M.D., our treatment expert here at The Body. 4) For further information over the phone, call Tuesday's Child, a nationally-known social service agency for children with HIV/AIDS, and children of adults living with HIV/AIDS. Their phone number is 310-204-2081, and they are located in Los Angeles.

5) There's an organization called Mother's Voices which is doing some good work. They have a website:, or can be reached by calling 212-730-2777 (New York City).
