Health Services of North Texas: Our History

Health Services of North Texas (HSNT) has a long history of caring well for people living with HIV/AIDS, dating back to 1988. HSNT started as a group of volunteers that came together to show support for patients and their families as they learned to live with the diagnosis. As the need for healthcare services grew for this vulnerable population, so did the mission to provide medical care, prescription assistance, counseling, and case management. Health Services of North Texas continues to provide robust HIV/AIDS treatment and care. We are proud to be a part of this fight to end the HIV epidemic by 2030. Our ongoing mission is to improve the quality of life for all North Texans through medical care, support service, and advocacy at all six locations in Denton, Wylie, and Plano.

Ending the HIV Epidemic: The Big Picture

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) launched the Ending the HIV Epidemic in the US (EHE) initiative in 2019. The initiative aims to reduce new HIV infections by 90% in the US by 2030 through scaling up vital HIV prevention and treatment strategies.

Innovative, community-driven solutions to leverage scientific advances in HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and outbreak response are at the heart of EHE. The initiative is also working to address racial, ethnic, and geographic disparities that have contributed to HIV prevention gaps for far too long.

The comprehensive approach of EHE focuses resources where they are needed most and strives to meet people where they are with the services they need. The initiative provides a targeted infusion of new resources and support to 50 local areas that account for more than half of new HIV diagnoses (48 counties, San Juan, Puerto Rico and Washington, DC), and 7 states with a substantial rural burden. Through increased investments and local innovation, EHE aims to make history and end the domestic HIV epidemic once and for all.
