The eighth North American Housing and HIV/AIDS Research Summit will bring together researchers, policy makers, service providers, and people with HIV from all parts of North America for a summit to review recent research and policy initiatives, discuss evidence-based practice and policy, and develop community-driven research and advocacy strategies.
Poverty, housing status, food security, employment, incarceration, race/ethnicity, behavioral health issues, stigma, and intimate partner violence are social drivers. What impact do these drivers have on health disparities? What policies and programs can influence these drivers or mitigate their negative effects? The summit will tackle the social drivers of HIV.
The three-day event will be held in Washington DC on September 14-16 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.
