The François-Xavier Bagnoud Center (FXB Center) began in 1987 as a clinical program that provided family-centered care for HIV, infectious diseases, and immunologic disorders. Early in the 1990s, the center received generous funding from Countess Albina du Boisrouvray’s FXB Foundation to enhance the local clinical program and to expand the center’s expertise to address the rapidly growing HIV pandemic. In recognition of this generous award, the center was named the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center.
Continuing our history as leaders and innovators in the care of women, children, and families living with HIV, our mission is to eliminate barriers to interdisciplinary, client-centered, equitable, high-quality health care for those at the greatest risk for socially determined health vulnerabilities. The FXB Center strives to meet this mission through research, education, and translation of evidence-based findings into practice across programs locally, nationally, and globally.
We envision a health care system that is able to meet the needs of the most vulnerable populations through equitable, evidence-based, high-quality care that promotes optimum health and supports elimination of health disparities.
