The Summit Series is 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. 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. Launched in 2005, the Housing and HIV/AIDS Research Summit Series supports knowledge transfer and evidence-based skill building.
