Obstetrics & Gynecology

WHP was instrumental in developing one of the country’s leading centers to prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to child.

We have an onsite obstetrician with long-time expertise in HIV who is available to see any HIV positive pregnant woman and work to ensure that she is able to have an HIV negative child. Our obstetrician also works directly with the partners of our patients to help women living with HIV and their partners to have healthy, active, and safe sexual lives.

WHP also has an onsite gynecologist to attend to all of our patient’s gynecological needs. This is particularly important because HIV positive women suffer from higher rates of cervical cancer. By having this service on-site in clinic, patients at WHP are much more likely to receive cancer prevention services and remain healthy and active in their lives
