10/17 - HIV/AIDS in Louisiana

10/17 - HIV/AIDS in Louisiana

How many people are living with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana and what resources are available to them?

Baton Rouge and New Orleans consistently rank among the top three cities nationwide for the highest HIV and AIDS rates per capita. And in rural Louisiana, the number of new HIV infections has risen slightly with infected individuals more likely to escalate to an AIDS diagnosis.

So, how many people are living with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana and what resources are available to them? Why has the state seen an overall decline in new HIV diagnosis but an increase in its rural areas? Is there sufficient access to treatment in Louisiana? And what role does stigma play in the spread of the virus? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “HIV/AIDS in Louisiana” Wednesday, October 25 at 7 p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, October 24.)
