Who We Are
The Louisiana Rural Health Association recognizes that rural areas are unique and differ from urban areas in their geography, population mix and density, economics, lifestyle, values, and social organizations. Rural people and communities require programming and advocacy that responds to their unique characteristics and needs.
Through discussion and exploration, the LRHA works to create a clear understanding of rural health care in Louisiana, its needs and effective ways to meet these needs.
ATTENTION: COVID-19 Information
The Louisiana Rural Health Association has been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19. We have been working closely with the Louisiana State Office of Rural Health to assess and assist the impact on our members.
The LRHA will continue to advocate for rural communities to have the resources they need to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. LRHA has compiled the following free COVID-19 resources provided by the CDC, WHO, and other reputable organizations:
