At AIDS Services of Austin we provide Free HIV & STI testing, case management, fresh groceries, housing assistance programs, dental services, health insurance assistance, and various peer group support networks. Annually, ASA provides direct care services to over 1,500 people and HIV prevention education to over 10,000 people in Central Texas.
1 in 8 people do not know their status. ASA conducts over 1,600 HIV tests a year. World AIDS Day is an excellent time to get tested and know your status!
We are seeing an increase in the number of people living with HIV as transmission still takes place locally, as well as, with our rising population more people living with HIV are relocating here. More people means a larger demand for access to both care and prevention services.
An AIDS diagnosis is no longer an expected health outcome for someone testing positive for HIV.
We have the tools to get to an HIV free generation and are planning to eradicate the epidemic. We are succeeding, but our work is not over yet!
