Enhanced Comprehensive HIV Prevention Planning and Implementation for Metropolitan Statistical Areas Most Affected by HIV/AIDS

Dallas, TXTexas Department of State Health Services

The Texas Department of State Health Services is under the direction of Commissioner David Lakey, MD with a vision of “a healthy Texas” and a mission “to improve health and well-being in Texas”.  That mission includes prevention, treatment, and/or controlling the spread of HIV, STD, and other communicable diseases to protect the health of the citizens of Texas. In keeping with this mission, TDSHS procures, allocates, and manages fiscal and human resources to (1) provide HIV/STD education and information; (2) collect, interpret, and distribute data relating to HIV and STD; (3) provide guidance to those who oversee, plan for, or provide HIV and STD services; and (4) provide medication and supplies to prevent, manage, and treat communicable diseases. In pursuit of this collective mission, we will make every effort to assure that the citizens of Texas receive quality services.
