Understanding Baton Rouge’s AIDS Case Rate What is the Baton Rouge MSA? – Baton Rouge Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) is 9 parishes Ascension East Baton Rouge East Feliciana Iberville Livingston Pointe Coupee St. Helena West Baton Rouge West Feliciana
Baton Rouge MSA Population and Demographics – 2009 Total Population is 786,947 11.5% increase since 2000 – 49% Female, 51% Male – 60% White – 36.5% Black – 2.3% Hispanic – 1.7% Asian – Median Age 33.7 years (national is 36.3) – Almost 85% of people age 25+ are high school graduates

2008 Estimated AIDS Case Rates US Metropolitan Areas CDC 2008 HIV Surveillance Report, Vol 20
Persons Living in the Baton Rouge MSA 2000-2009
Is Baton Rouge at a disadvantage statistically because of the number of prisons in the MSA? 2009 the BR MSA had a HIV Prevalence rate of 553 per 100,000. If you take out the prisoners (in state correctional facilities only) this only drops to 506 per 100,000. Removing prisons does not account for high prevalence rates in the BR MSA
Persons Unaware of Status The CDC estimates that 21% of all people infected with HIV are unaware of their HIV status. If you apply this percentage to the Baton Rouge MSA: – 1,208 persons living with HIV in the Baton Rouge MSA who have not been diagnosed and are unaware they are infected.
What C&T sites identify the most new positives? Identification of new infections between 10/1/09-9/30/10 OPH Region 2 STD clinic – 30 (1.0% positivity) EKL ER – 24 (1.3% positivity) Metro - Main office – 17 (2.0% positivity) Metro - Mobile unit – 12 (2.1% positivity) Capital City – 12 (2.0% positivity) Hunt Correctional – 8 (.2% positivity) East Baton Rouge PHU – 6 (.5% positivity) Metro - EBR Parish prison – 5 (1.6% positivity) ***Example- for Hunt to identify 8 new infections, they tested over 4000 individuals***

Transferability- The strategy can be implemented in communities that differ in size, resources, and demographics. Effect size- The potential magnitude of the health effect for the strategy is meaningful. Sustainability of health impact- The health effect of the strategy will endure over time.
