HIV/AIDS Minority in Florida

41000 A strategic health plan for the population in discussion is core in eliminating inconsistency with the majority ethnic populations in general. A holistic approach in the health of those infected with HIV not only promotes one’s well being and lifelong knowledge on the epidemic but reduces the incidences of HIV infection and re-infection in the minority population at large (Syed, Sulaiman, Hassali, &amp. Lee, n.d.). The well being of an individual encompasses both mental and physical health therefore psychological condition is proportional to physical condition. A health plan that encourages occasional counseling sessions at no cost to those infected with the virus plays an important role in one’s mental well being. Availing the counselors at all times both physically, on a toll free hotline and virtually is effective in aiding the infected and newly diagnosed patients with coping. Depression for that matter is an illness that is slowly eliminated with the help of anti-depressants (Rhodes, Malow, &amp. Jolly, 2012). Counseling allows the retroviral patient to accept their condition and work on moving forward in life. Early death cases based on depression for that matter are eradicated. Another approach on the health plan is availing retroviral drugs and treatment to all age groups for free and at subsidized costs respectively (Syed, Sulaiman, Hassali, &amp. Lee, n.d.). The minority ethnic groups in Florida are impoverished because they constitute a majority of the low-income earners in the workforce. Medication for those ailing from the virus is in need throughout their lives. The patients are known to collect the drugs from health institutions monthly. A health plan that distributes the drugs to the HIV/AIDS population at no cost promotes physical health because their immune system improves (Rhodes, Malow, &amp. Jolly, 2012). In conjunction with the rear mentioned, treatment of the population at low costs in comparison with the healthy population is vital in prevention of deaths caused by opportunistic diseases. For the approach to work out, a unit fully dedicated to the HIV/AIDS population is to be established. A mobile workforce under the unit is effective in distribution of drugs and offering treatment where the patient is unable to access the health institution at a given time for whatsoever reason.&nbsp.
