In 1995, the Louisiana Legislature passed Act 985, which required that the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) prepare a yearly report card describing the overall health of its citizens and health‐related issues affecting Louisianans. In addition to informing Louisianans of the overall health circumstances in our state, this annual publication is an effective tool for health planning and evaluating the effectiveness of health programs.

STD and HIV infection in Louisiana require responsive interventions to decrease new infections, slow HIV disease progression, increase individual awareness of STD and HIV status, and help ensure access to medical care for persons who have HIV or need treatment for an STD. The 2013 STD/HIV Program Report provides a thorough surveillance profile, as well as descriptions of the state’s prevention, counseling and testing, care, services, housing, and evaluation programs. While many challenges remain, the report highlights several areas of progress. This report reflects data through the end of the 2013 calendar year and is the most recent report available as of 2015.

The goal of the surveillance for West Nile (WN) Infections in humans is to describe the disease burden of the West Nile infection on the human population. Only West Nile Neuroinvasive diseases (NID) including encephalitis or meningitis get reliably reported. For every NID case there are about 10 cases of Fever and about 90 completely asymptomatic infections. Only one percent of the WN-Fever (WN-F) and asymptomatic (WN-PRE) cases are reported. Although we show the number of cases of all WN infections, it is important to remember that only WN-NID cases are useful for monitoring disease burden and trends in WN in humans.
