In 2016, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Public Health tested blood from 1,331 Cameron County residents and found 30 of those participants tested positive. That translates to 2.3 percent which is appreciably higher than the national average of 1.6 percent.
The University of Texas Health San Antonio was awarded a $6.5 million grant to study Hepatitis C in people living with HIV and has partnered with the Valley AIDS Council to identify people suffering from Hep C thru a two-part screening program for a period of three years.
