The Louisiana State University School of Public Health (LSUPH) provides the leadership for the Louisiana Rural Health Access Program. The School of Public Health was established in July 2003 with the mission of improving the health of people in Louisiana though education, research and community service. A special emphasis is placed on the health and healthcare of underserved people.

The Bureau of Primary Care and Rural Health, a division of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, is a key partner in this initiative. In addition, a Partners Technical Assistance Board comprised of 12-25 organizational representatives participate in discussion of key program issues.
