Housing & HIV Regional Research Summit
The North American Housing and HIV/AIDS Research Summit VIII:
Tackling the Social Drivers of HIV
September 14-16, 2015, Washington DC
Omni Shoreham Hotel
Poverty, housing status, food security, employment, incarceration, race/ethnicity, behavioral health issues, stigma and intimate partner violence. What impact do these drivers have on health disparities? What policies and programs can influence these drivers or mitigate their negative effects?
The North American Housing and HIV/AIDS Research Summit, a collaboration among the U.S. National AIDS Housing Coalition (NAHC), the Ontario HIV Treatment Network (OHTN) and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will be held September 14-16 at the Washington DC Omni Shoreham Hotel. The three-day event — the two-day Summit following by full-day topic-specific Learning Institutes — brings together researchers, policy makers, service providers and people with HIV from all parts of North America (including Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico and the United States). The Summit provides a dynamic interactive setting to review recent research and policy initiatives, discuss evidence-based practice and policy, and develop community-driven research and advocacy strategies. The North American Housing and HIV/AIDS Research Summit supports knowledge transfer and evidence-based skill building.
