Our History

 
1998
Born and raised in Tijuana Baja California Mexico, Rosalva Martha-Patten (a.k.a. Rosalva Vasquez) had the need to heal her own pain after receiving her first baby Noel Vasquez diagnosis with HIV when he received a transfusion with tainted blood. Noel was 4 years old.
2004
Working as a volunteer for the UCSD Mother, Child and Adolescent HIV Program, Rosalva met the first two children infected with HIV coming from Tijuana Mexico. Their names: Eunice and Noemi.
2007
With the interest of Dr. Stephen Spector, Program Director from the UCSD HIV Program, in 1998 the Binational UCSD and Hospital General de Tijuana HIV Program landed in Tijuana. No support center existed for infected children and their families.
2008
Since 1996 until now Rosalva has been opening five HIV organizations helping women and children living with HIV in Baja California: 1996 PAMSIDA, 2004 Eunime-Por Tijuana, 2007 DIF-EUNIME, 2008 EUNIME INC and 2010 ES POR LOS NINOS, A.C.
2010
The new Eunime Inc/ Es Por Los Ninos, A.C. center is dedicated to the memory of Noel and to the Women, to the Children and to the Adolescents whose struggles in the fight against AIDS.
