Rapides Foundation: Healthcare Access Initiative
Access to quality healthcare is important to reduce health disparities and improve health status for people in The Rapides Foundation service area. The Foundation's most recent Community Health Assessment showed 36.8% of people reported difficulty in accessing healthcare services in 2013. While this is an improvement in healthcare access from 2010, the numbers of people in Low and Very Low Income homes who report difficulty accessing care remain quite high. Chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, and hypertension have been and continue to be a serious health problem throughout the state, including The Rapides Foundation service area, and are disproportionately present in communities served by Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs).
