WF continues to bring awareness to HIV prevention

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - Wichita Falls city leaders are taking steps to reduce the amount of positive HIV cases in the city.

On Tuesday, the city councilors passed an ordinance to spend $117,300 on a special revenue fund to address the issue.

The funding will help identify individuals with high-risk behavior like students at Midwestern State University and people at homeless shelters.

This is the 16th year of the outreach program that spans an 11-county area. You can always get tested yourself at the health district located at 1700 3rd Street.
