Ms. Hand’s Services Help Significantly Reduce the Likelihood of Bearing a Baby with HIV

MILWAUKEE, WI, December 12, 2013, Janice R. Hand, MBA, program director for the Wisconsin HIV Primary Care Support Network at the Medical College of Wisconsin, has been recognized by Worldwide Who’s Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in HIV treatment and prevention.


An interest in helping others prompted Ms. Hand to become involved in her profession. Her work began in 1981 as the executive director of the Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation. She now has 37 years of experience in medical education and has spent the past 18 years as program director of the Wisconsin HIV Primary Care Support Network, which she originally started in 1991. Her areas of expertise include program development, grants management, and government advocacy. She is responsible for managing the decision-making team including social workers, nurses and other personnel, resolving client-related issues, overseeing cash flow, performing a wide range of administrative duties, conceiving community program services, writing grant proposals, expending funds within programmatic and legal parameters, developing and implementing project evaluations, collecting data to assess progress, and producing progress and financial reports.


The HIV Primary Care Support Network is a statewide organization that addresses the medical and social service needs of children, youth and women with HIV, and their families. In addition to intensive case management services for children, youth and women with HIV, the agency offers a perinatal HIV prevention program that provides intensive case management for women during pregnancy and immediately following the baby’s birth. Since 2005, no mother who received services through the program has borne a child with HIV.


Ms. Hand attributes her success to her passion for helping others and desire to work with HIV patients. A highlight of her career is that her program has saved children's lives, as her services help mothers with HIV to significantly reduce the likelihood of bearing a baby with HIV. Ms. Hand received a Master of Business Administration in 1983 from Marquette University and a Bachelor of Business Administration in 1980 from Carthage College, Kenosha. She is a member of the AIDS Alliance for Children, Youth & Families. She also owns a tavern in Racine, Wis., which was previously called City Haul Lounge.
