The North American Housing and HIV Research Summit IX provides a unique, interdisciplinary forum where researchers, persons living with HIV (PLWH), policy analysts, service providers, and conference participants from a wide array of backgrounds have an opportunity to engage in in-depth discussions surrounding new research findings that further define the ways housing and other social determinants affect PLWH and international conversations to end the HIV epidemic. Since its inception, the Housing and HIV Research Summit series has served as the premier venue for informing HIV/AIDS housing policy and structural interventions; which creates the space necessary for theory and research to be discussed and translated into policies and action.

NORTH AMERICAN HOUSING & HIV/AIDS RESEARCH SUMMIT IX:
Structural Interventions and Ending the Epidemic
August 1-3, 2018, Washington, DC
Call for Abstracts
The North American Housing and HIV/AIDS Research Summit IX will be held August 1-3, 2018, in Washington, DC at the Capitol Hilton. The scope of Summit IX includes the full range of social drivers of HIV, including poverty, housing status, food security, employment, incarceration, race/ethnicity, behavioral health issues, stigma and intimate partner violence. What impact do these drivers have on ending the HIV epidemic? What policies and programs can influence these drivers or mitigate their negative effects?
Growing evidence demonstrates the effectiveness of structural interventions in strengthening HIV prevention and treatment programs. These interventions include social protections (such as housing, nutrition and transportation supports), economic empowerment (including education and job training), decriminalization, anti-discrimination laws and campaigns to change social norms.
Rigorous research on social drivers and structural interventions is critical to lay the groundwork for these types of approaches and to support their scale-up.
We invite research, policy and practice abstracts relevant to the Summit IX theme of Structural Interventions and Ending the HIV Epidemic. The deadline for abstract submission is March 18, 2018
We are excited to announce that the 9th Housing and HIV Research Summit, Structural Interventions and Ending the Epidemic, will be held August 1 – August 3, 2018, at the Capitol Hilton in Washington, DC. Updates about Summit IX will be posted here as they become available.
