Haiti had an estimated 19,000 children under 15 years of age living with HIV/AIDS, but there is limited published data on the health status and the health care delivered to this population. Caring for Haitian Orphans with AIDS, Inc., (CHOAIDS) is a US-based non-profit that provides long-term comprehensive care to HIV-positive orphans in Haiti, ultimately providing this vulnerable population with the skills to become self-sufficient and productive members in their communities. This care is provided using a non-traditional orphanage setting referred to as family-centered model. This presentation will describe this model and present the preliminary evaluation results.
