HIV in Texas

By the end of 2019, there were 97,844 Texans known to be living with a diagnosis of HIV.

Over the past ten years, the number of Texans living with diagnosed HIV infections has increased by 4% every year. Growth is primarily due to advances in the effectiveness of HIV treatment and increases in the number and proportion of persons living with HIV (PLWH) who are receiving effective treatment. New diagnoses made each year have been stable over the past decade, with 4,203 new diagnoses in 2019.

Reducing new HIV infections in Texas depends on coordinated efforts to identify people who are unaware of their infection. These efforts ensure PLWH are referred to and retained in HIV medical care. Routine HIV screening is key to stopping HIV in Texas.
