The Housing & HIV/AIDS Research Summit Series provides a unique interdisciplinary forum where researchers, PLWH, policy analysts and service providers can discuss new findings on the role of housing and other social determinants on the health of people with or at risk for HIV. The Summit Series is the premier venue for informing HIV/AIDS housing policy and discussing the social drivers of HIV disease. The North American Housing and HIV Summit IX will provide an opportunity for in-depth conversation about the importance of addressing a full range of social drivers of HIV and disparities in plans to end the HIV epidemic.
