Our Story

Harris County Public Health seeks to invigorate HIV testing and outreach. We target high-risk populations through education and engagement. We believe that removing the barriers associated with testing, such as lack of insurance or transportation, will encourage individuals to test and know their status. We provide free and mobile HIV and Syphilis testing to anyone in Greater Harris County by simply texting our team at 281.962.8378. If a test should come back positive we will link an individual to care and assist with every step of the process.
