HIV/STDs

October 20, 2022
This report was prepared for the Louisiana HIV/AIDS Program (HAP) of the Office of Public Health within the Department of Health and Hospitals. The purpose of this needs assessment is to gain understanding of the current care service needs of People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) throughout Louisiana and within each of the nine administrative regions. In particular, the assessment aims to provide an accurate estimate of the extent of PLWHA’s unmet primary care and HIV-related support service needs, their experiences in accessing those services, the perceived barriers to those services, and some insight into their reported knowledge of those services. Our aim in constructing this statewide assessment was to collect opinions, perceptions, and experiences from a group of people that is as representative of people living with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana as is possible.
