Latino PLWH: Service Needs and Barriers to Care
In March 2000, the Portland Area HIV Services Planning Council and the Oregon HIV Care Coalition contracted with Program Design and Evaluation Services (PDES) to conduct a follow-up study with Latino PLWH. (People living with HIV)
PDES completed interviews with 32 Latino PLWH between August 2000 and March 2001.
Almost three-fourths of respondents were born outside the U.S., and almost half were born in Mexico.
Twelve respondents (38%) were undocumented, 11 (31%) had legal documentation, and nine (28%) were U.S. citizens.
Twenty-seven respondents (84%) had health insurance, and most were covered through some form of government program.
You don't say... And here I thought that illegal aliens couldn't get taxpayer funded health care. But hey, it's not like treating HIV is expensive or anything. That valuable service they provide by selling drugs and raping young girls is definitely worth it.
Oh yeah, question that last statement... DOC ICE detainer list at a previous post.
