Notes

Abstract: This study examines the geography of pediatric HIV, HIV in women, and age at diagnosis of women in the Dallas Fort-Worth Metroplex, Houston-Galveston Area, and the colonias of Texas-Mexico border counties using the human ecology model. In addition, the study investigates the correlation of female HIV rates and female age at diagnosis with pediatric HIV. County-level morbidity data from the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) from 1980-2009 are analyzed. Pediatric HIV and HIV in women have a strong positive correlation. The border counties have lower rates of HIV than do the urban areas, and have the youngest age at diagnosis, but have a higher pediatric HIV rate than Dallas Fort-Worth Metroplex. Interventions should target preventing HIV in females.
