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.
