HIV Stops With You. Know Your Status, Know What You Can Do.
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus passed primarily through sex or by sharing needles through drug use. HIV weakens your immune system, which makes it hard for your body to fight infection and certain illnesses. Anyone is at risk for HIV, regardless of gender, sexuality, or race. Because the virus can easily pass from person to person regardless of sexual identity, gender, and race, it’s considered an epidemic that affects the overall well-being of our community.
Dallas County is on a mission to end it by 2030.
The first step is getting tested for HIV. Every single person from 13 – 64, should get tested at least once. But there’s more. Click here.
