Our Mission

Mother and Child Alliance reinforces a safety net during and after pregnancy for moms, babies, and their providers to prevent HIV and other serious, costly pediatric infections, in newborns. We strengthen disparate prenatal and postpartum systems of care in Illinois and across the U.S.

The numbers speak for themselves

Mother and Child Alliance was established in 2000 to eliminate deaths from pediatric AIDS and to end transmission of HIV/AIDS from mothers to their children in Chicago and throughout Illinois.
