National Housing and HIV/AIDS Research Summit Series
“[R]esearch without action is like dusty books on a shelf…and action without research is simply a tantrum.” – Shirlene Cooper, New York City AIDS Housing Network, Opening keynote, Summit III
NAHC’s National Housing and HIV/AIDS Research Summit series provides an unprecedented venue for the presentation of research of significance to HIV/AIDS housing policy, coupled with dialogue about the public policy implications of research findings. Compelling research findings presented at all three Summit meetings demonstrate the critical significance of housing as an intervention to address both public and individual health priorities, showing strong correlations between improved housing status and reduced HIV risk, improved access to HIV medical care, and better health outcomes.
Three leading researchers have worked with NAHC to plan the summit series: Dr. Angela Aidala at Columbia University; Dr. Dennis Culhane at the University of Pennsylvania; and Dr. David Holtgrave at Johns Hopkins.
