Louisiana Community AIDS Partnership
About The Louisiana Community AIDS Partnership
More than 17,000 individuals are living with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana and far too many continue to become infected with HIV each year. Louisiana ranked 5th highest in the country for AIDS case rates and 12th in the number of reported AIDS cases in 2009. There are persons living with HIV in every parish of Louisiana (source: 2009 HIV/AIDS Program Report, Louisiana Office of Public Health).
Established in 2007, the Louisiana Community AIDS Partnership (LCAP) is a statewide collaborative convened by the Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) in alliance with AIDS United. LCAP’s mission is to prevent new infections and improve the health and quality of life of individuals living with, vulnerable to, and affected by HIV/AIDS in Louisiana through public-private partnerships at the community, parish, state and national levels.
