"As a child, I knew that life would look different for me than my counterparts, but I did not understand what that truly meant, as I was not equipped with the necessary tools to identify what I was experiencing at that age. So, as life continued to move forward and I began to formulate my words to identify who I was, parts of me still seemed somewhat unclear. At that time, there weren't openly trans-identified individuals on TV, on the news, or in books. As a result, it took years for me to understand the scope of who I truly was.”
Maddox Jackson, the EmpowerHim Program Coordinator

When you share your trans experience in the U.S. Trans Survey, you‘ll be adding your voice to tens of thousands.

Our Story

The Community Prevention and Intervention Unit of the Department of Healthcare Sciences is involved in a wide spectrum of activities to help prevent sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

The CPIU is staffed by more than 20 professionals involved in a wide spectrum of activities to help at risk individuals and HIV/AIDS community-based organizations and health departments across the country prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including HIV.

As stated in its Mission Statement, the CPIU staff specializes in partnering with communities to develop and implement effective programs to prevent disease and promote health.
HIV Testing & Risk Reduction Counseling Programs

CPIU staff members provide counseling and HIV testing at a wide variety of community locations, especially drug treatment centers, half-way houses, the county jail, and other community locations, to people at high risk for infection. Individual and small group sessions are available to help people change behaviors that could transmit or cause them to acquire HIV or other STDs.

CPIU collaborates with many local agencies and organizations in efforts to serve at-risk populations in multiple settings, such as individuals within substance use/abuse clinics, homeless shelters, incarcerated/recently released facilities, community college campuses, and monolingual/bilingual populations.
HIV Prevention Toolbox

As part of its education program, CPIU provides an HIV Prevention Toolbox, which includes informational resources for Community-Based Organizations and “frontline personnel” involved in preventing the spread of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.
HIV Epidemiology Research and Behavioral Studes (HERBS)


The CPIU participates in research and surveillance projects that help measure the HIV epidemic and support the evaluation of HIV prevention activities. HERBS staff provide training and technical assistance that help health departments across Texas participate in two HIV disease-reporting efforts that collect data on recent infections and treatment-resistant infections. The staff also conducts patient interviews and medical record abstractions as part of the Medical Monitoring Project.
