Louisiana charity health care stays ahead of the curve - Louisiana Offers Cervical Cancer Vaccination Order to Protect Girls From HPV - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum

The system, which replaces the county hospital system of many other states, is an odd mixture of aging infrastructure and underinvestment, combined with well thought out public health initiatives. This latest campaign, vaccinating girls against HPV infections will ensure that, at least on this matter, being poor in a poor state doesn't mean you get substandard healthcare. More importantly, it will save lives.
