Our mission is to prevent, treat, and/or control the spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). In keeping with this mission, we procure, allocate, and manage fiscal and human resources so that we may:

  • Provide HIV/STD education and information
  • Collect, interpret, and distribute data relating to HIV and STD
  • Provide guidance to those who oversee, plan for, or provide HIV and STD services
  • Provide medication and supplies to prevent, manage, and treat communicable diseases

In pursuit of this mission, we will make every effort to assure that the citizens of Texas receive quality services.
