Bryan shares Brazos County with College Station, which is home to Texas A&M University. In 2015, the HIV prevalence rate of Brazos County was 193 per 100K people, well under the Texas rate of 368. But let’s not celebrate just get. HIV, like other STIs, is preventable, and those numbers need to come down.

In 2016, Brazos County had 353 gonorrhea cases, at a rate of 160.2 per 100K people. The rate for primary and secondary syphilis was 4.5.
