Message from the Mayor

"People of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and social-economic status are affected by the infection. The greatest challenge in addressing this public health crisis is the stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS.

Community Leadership Messages

“In this world, we have to stop judging people when they are experiencing a health issue or concern. It happens to all of us, and that is when we need to support the most. Whether it’s HIV, Cancer, Pregnancy, or Coronavirus, we need to be a good steward and show genuine care for your neighbor.”

Natalie N. Cooley, MPH, CPhT
Community Mobilization Supervisor
Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Public Health - STD/HIV/Hepatitis Program

“The Ryan White Program is an integral part of Ending the HIV Epidemic in Baton Rouge. Through our collaboration with the Fast-Track Cities Initiative, the Ryan White Program can continue providing a comprehensive system of HIV primary medical care, and essential supportive services to improve health outcomes of people living with HIV and reduce new HIV diagnosis."

"Local community-based organizations and health centers are the real experts around solutions to achieve Fast-Track Cities goals. Collaborating with local experts is insightful and inspiring. This collaboration between local organizations, health centers, hospitals, local government officials, and the Louisiana Department of health makes the Fast-Track City goals a reality!"

"The mission of HealthyBR is to create a healthier city for all. Since 2012 and the launch of our first Community Health Needs Assessment, we as a medical community have put an increased focus on addressing HIV and STI's. This focus was intensified when Mayor Broome took office in 2017. With the launch of the Ending the HIV Epidemic commission, we are excited about seeing the impact and results of the hard work that many of our stakeholders and community-based organizations have been doing for over 30 years."

Jared Hymowitz
