Join Us to Help Fight HIV

We can unite to end HIV by ensuring that everyone knows their HIV status. Those who know they have HIV make choices to protect themselves and others. Routine screening also serves to normalize HIV, breaking barriers stigma has created for more than 30 years.

To learn more about routine screening in Texas, contact us at TestTexas@dshs.texas.gov.

Approximately 18,000 Texans are unaware of their HIV infection.


Knowledge is power. Learning one’s positive serostatus is the first step for newly diagnosed HIV patients to get linked to care and treated early in the disease process with the potential to have a nearly normal lifespan.
- C. Everett Koop, Former Surgeon General of the United States
